Call for Early Career Reviewers!

Education + Training

Education and Training (E+T) is pleased to announce the creation of an Early Career Review Board.

E+T is designed to provide a platform for interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners to disseminate research on Vocational Education and Training, Young Person Employability / Career Development and how better links between education and industry can be established and maintained.

As strong believers in positive change, E+T has decided to develop an Early Career Review Board (ECRB) to give Early Career Researchers the means to participate within a journal publishing environment and to be involved in developing E+T for the community along with the editors and associate editors.

Selected applicants will be appointed to the ECRB for 3 years, after which there may be the opportunity to be appointed to the Editorial Review Board (ERB) in consultation with the editor. Each member is expected to review 3 to 4 new papers per year. There will be an introductory meeting to discuss the publication process and any questions. Training will be provided for Emerald’s submission system ScholarOne.

The application process is simple – please email the editor, Professor Martin McCracken, with a statement (no more than 400 words) on why you would like to be involved in the Review Board.  Please also mention your primary areas of research expertise. Early career researchers are those who have been awarded a doctoral degree in the past 5 years (excluding career breaks).
