Subject:Call for nominations for Editor of Child Maltreatment

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS EDITOR-IN-CHIEF OF CHILD MALTREATMENT Child Maltreatment is the peer-reviewed, quarterly scientific journal of The American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children (APSAC). It is widely indexed, has a broad interdisciplinary readership, and is ranked highly among its peers by the Institute for Scientific Information (2007 impact factor = 2.35, placing it first in the social work category and third in the family studies category). The APSAC Board is seeking nominations for editor-in-chief (EIC) of the journal, beginning September 1, 2009. The EIC serves a five-year term, and may serve up to two consecutive terms. The EIC is responsible for all decisions involving the review process and journal content, including selecting reviewers, working with authors, making final decisions about publication, planning and approving the content of special issues and focus sections, and selecting commentaries and letters to the editor for publication. The EIC chairs annual Editorial Board meetings, and reports to the APSAC Board of Directors and the APSAC Publications Committee. The EIC also is responsible for appointing Editorial Board members, setting the overall direction of the journal, coordinating manuscript flow, and working with the journal’s publisher, Sage Publications, to ensure that the journal’s mission is accomplished. The EIC must be intimately familiar with the field of child abuse and neglect and its related scientific, professional and policy literatures. Expertise in scientific research methods, cultural diversity, public policy and practice issues are important. It is critical that the EIC is committed to scientific rigor and appreciates the multidisciplinary and multicultural facets of child abuse and neglect. Financial support for operating a small editorial office at the EIC’s institution is included with the position. The exact terms of this arrangement are negotiated among the EIC, the EIC’s parent institution, and APSAC. Nominees must be willing to join APSAC, if selected and if not already a member. Nominations should include a vita and a cover letter describing: 1. The nominee’s vision for the journal and a description of how the nominee would lead the journal to attain that vision. 2. The nominee’s membership status in APSAC and history of work within the organization. 3. A description of the applicant’s career accomplishments to date in research, practice and public policy related to child maltreatment. 4. If the nominee is housed at an institution, University or agency, a letter from the nominee’s division head (e.g., Department chair or agency director) documenting institutional support for the nominee’s application to serve as EIC. This should indicate an understanding of the time and resource needs involved in serving as EIC, and a commitment to support the nominee’s needs in these areas. 5. Up to three letters of support may be included, but are not required. Questions about the EIC position should be directed to Dr. Elissa Brown at (718) 990-2355 or browne@stjohns.edu . Nominations must be received by March 1, 2009. Please send the nomination packet by either regular mail or email (email is preferred) to: Elissa J. Brown, Ph.D., Search Committee Chair Professor of Psychology PARTNERS Program Director St. John's University Marillac Hall, 8000 Utopia Parkway Queens, NY 11439 (718) 990-2355 Fax: 990-1586
