Journal of Academic Freedom Seeks New Editor


The AAUP’s Journal of Academic Freedom—the only journal dedicated exclusively to scholarship on academic freedom and its relation to shared governance, tenure, and collective bargaining—is searching for a new faculty editor. This online publication includes scholarship from the perspective of various academic disciplines and is international in its scope.

If you are a faculty member or a higher education professional with editorial experience and a record of publication and activism around academic freedom issues, please take a look at our announcement for a new faculty editor. Editorial responsibilities will include developing a call for papers and soliciting, selecting, and editing submissions for Volume 9 of the Journal, scheduled for publication in September 2018. You can read all previous volumes of the Journal of Academic Freedom, which debuted in 2010, on the AAUP website.

The faculty editor will serve a one-year, renewable term with a stipend to cover supplies and personal costs associated with journal activities. If you’d like to be considered for this opportunity to contribute to scholarly discourse on academic freedom, please send a letter of interest—along with a paragraph about topic suggestions for the 2018 call for papers—and a CV to Kelly Hand at by Monday, June 5.

Your comments are welcome. They must be relevant to the topic at hand and must not contain advertisements, degrade others, or violate laws or considerations of privacy. We encourage the use of your real name, but do not prohibit pseudonyms as long as you don’t impersonate a real person.
