The Editorial Management Board of Evidence & Policy invites applications for the editorship of the journal to run for a period of three years from 1 January 2022, with the possibility of renewing for a second two-year term. It is hoped that the newly appointed Editors in Chief will work alongside the current ones from September 2021 prior to a final handover at the end of December.

Application deadline: 30 April 2021

Evidence & Policy is the first peer-reviewed journal dedicated to comprehensive and critical assessment of the relationship between researchers and the evidence they produce and the concerns of policy makers and practitioners. International in scope and interdisciplinary in focus, it addresses the needs of those who develop public policies, provide public services, or provide the research base for evaluation and development across a wide range of social and public policy issues, and those who are working to connect the two (such as knowledge brokers). As well as more traditional research articles, the journal includes contemporary debate pieces and articles from practice.

More information about the journal can be found here:

Applications are invited for Co-Editors in Chief who reflect the multi-disciplinary and international nature of the journal in their expertise. This is an exciting opportunity to help shape and develop the journal over the coming 3-5 years. The Editors in Chief, Associate Editors and Editorial Management Board work closely together, are very supportive and meet at least twice a year, either in person or virtually, to help inform future content of the journal. We are particularly interested in building a diverse editorial team with good international networks that better reflect the breadth of our intended readership.

Applications close on 30 April. Go to the call for editors for a full job description and application instructions.
