Editor Search: The Nordic Journal for Aesthetics

posted in: Announcement

The Nordic Society for Aesthetics invites applications for the editorship of The Nordic Journal of
Aesthetics, the official journal of the Society, to begin in the second half of 2023. Both individual
applications and joint applications are welcome. The NSA particularly welcomes applications from
under-represented groups in our profession.
The term of the Editor or Editors is five years, with a possible five-year renewal, subject to review and
approval by the NSA Board. The Editors must be members of the Society.
The Nordic Journal of Aesthetics is published twice per year. It includes articles, book reviews, and
occasional symposia. From time to time a special issue may be devoted to a specific topic or the work of
a particular individual.
The Editor(s) are wholly responsible for the content of the journal. They are ex officio members of the
Board of the NSA, and are required to make an annual report to the Board on the operations of the
Journal. The Editors are supported by an Editorial Board, members of which are appointed by the
Support for the Editor(s) by their home institutions and departments is very welcome. This support
may include, for example, administrative assistance and/or teaching release. There is no mandatory
level of institutional support; such support will be weighed along with other factors. The nature and
extent of any institutional support, and (where support is offered) a commitment from an authorised
representative of the institution, must be included in applications.
The Editorship involves close collaboration with the Board. For this reason, it is preferable that the Editor
or one of the co-Editors is based at, affiliated to or has close connections to an academic institution in
one of the Nordic countries.
In addition to the indication of institutional commitment (if any) noted above, applications should
include a complete CV (or CVs) and a well-developed statement from the applicant(s) detailing their
reasons for applying, their qualifications for the editorial role, and their vision and/or plans for the
future of the Journal. Applicants may wish to explain how they would like to see the content of the
Journal evolve, how they would increase the range or diversity of contributions to, or readers of, the
Journal, and so on.
Applications should be submitted to the President of the Nordic Society for Aesthetics, Professor Arto
Haapala, by 15th February 2023. A search committee consisting of members of the NSA Board will review
applications, conduct interviews, and recommend an appointment to the Board, which will make the
final decision. It is expected that candidates will be interviewed in the Spring of 2023.
