UVM Seeks Faculty Members to Serve on New University of Vermont Press Editorial Board

Date: 
Friday, January 12, 2024
 
The University seeks experienced faculty members to serve on the inaugural editorial board of the new University of Vermont Press. 
 
Operating under the auspices of the UVM Libraries, the UVM Press publishes peer-reviewed and scrupulously edited scholarship under a diamond open-access model to ensure free readership, free authorship, and immediate, online, global access to all its published titles. Part of a larger global movement to develop fair and sustainable practices in scholarly publishing, the UVM Press puts the interests of scholars, students, and the public at large first and aims to publish work in line with UVM's core research strengths, including topics that advance the health and betterment of the environment, democracy, and society. Its inaugural publication, the Journal of Ecological Engineering Design, an open-access journal produced in partnership with the American Ecological Engineering Society, can be read here, and the press is working to add book titles to its catalogue in the near future.  
 
To that end, the press is seeking nine faculty at the rank of associate professor or above from across the university to serve on its faculty advisory board. In a general sense, members of the faculty advisory board review and vote to publish manuscripts that have been vetted by the UVM editorial staff and that have received at least two positive endorsements for publication by peer reviewers. Board members are not required to have any specific expertise, as faculty advisory boards are typically composed of faculty from different schools and departments who, as a whole, best represent the scholarly expertise of the faculty.  
 
Board members will meet at least once during the fall and spring semesters. Meetings will be held in Howe Library, though accommodations will be made for board members who are unable to attend due to teaching or scheduling conflicts. 
 
The provost will appoint the board in consultation with the VP for Research and the Dean of Libraries and seeks expressions of interest from faculty. If you would consider serving, or if you’d care to nominate a colleague, please send a brief note to Faith Morgan (faith.morgan@uvm.edu).
