An exciting opportunity has arisen for a co-editor position for the International Journal for Academic Development, IJAD. The editorial team are looking for a co-editor based in North America, Africa, the Middle East, or South America.
The purpose of IJAD is to enable academic developers in higher education across the world to exchange ideas about practice and research, and to extend the theory of academic development, with the goal of improving the quality of higher education internationally.
IJAD is the premier international journal for academic development (also called educational development and faculty evelopment). In 2020, IJAD had an Impact Factor of 2.929, placing it at #82/263 in the “Education & Education Research” category of SSCI. Furthermore, since 2016, Google has ranked IJAD among (or near) the 20 most influential higher education journals globally.
The co-editor appointment will be for 4 years (1 January 2022 until 31 December 2025), and the appointee will work collaboratively with the three ongoing co-editors - Dr Klara Bolander Laksov (Sweden), Dr Johan Geertsema (Singapore), and Dr Julie Timmermans (New Zealand) - and the seven associate editors.
The role of co-editor provides an opportunity to influence the academic development research agenda and to expand linkages between one’s own region and the international academic development community. The position is voluntary. It involves working to tight deadlines and participating in monthly online meetings. Typically, at least one co-editor attends the ICED Council meeting each year.
