EOI Journal Editor

We are currently seeking expressions of interest for the role of Editor to take on the leadership of the Australian Aboriginal Studies (AAS) journal.

The AAS journal is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal promoting excellence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research, including comparative studies. It is published for a wide audience in both print and digital form.

The Editorial Advisory Board of Australian Aboriginal Studies includes eminent international and national scholars from a range of disciplines.

The Editor will be an established Indigenous academic with a strong publications record and an understanding of the ethics and methodologies underpinning high quality Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research.

The role requires connections within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research community that can attract high quality submissions to the AAS journal.

The Editor will be supported by an Assistant Editor and Book Review Editor who will assist with submissions, feedback to authors and peer review.  

The Journal utilises an online submissions management system (Scholastica) and production of the journal will be managed by AIATSIS’ publishing arm, Aboriginal Studies Press.

The Editor role is not remunerated, but will include:

  • Visiting Fellowship at AIATSIS (enhanced access to the AIATSIS Collection, library and research networks)
  • a complimentary subscription to the AAS journal for two years post-appointment and
  • complimentary registration to the biennial AIATSIS National Indigenous Research Conference.

This role can be performed remotely (you don't need to be based in Canberra).

Term of appointment is 2 years.
