Press Start Call for Editors

May 10, 2021

The editorial board of Press Start is currently seeking to recruit new editors to join our team. As a student journal, we are the perfect place to gain experience in academic publishing, and our friendly and supportive international board members are happy to offer mentorship to new editors.

The role primarily involves seeking and assigning peer reviewers, providing clear and kind feedback on papers, and copyediting. We are also open to ideas regarding the scope and direction of the journal as well as ideas regarding our social media presence.

The position is voluntary and remote. We organise the journal primarily via Discord, mostly via text chat with one or two voice/video meetings per year. Regular updates and active participation on Discord is expected. Applicants must be current graduate/postgraduate students or have graduated within the past year. As a Game Studies journal, an interest in video games is ideal, but we encourage scholars from across disciplines to apply, as our publication (and the field) is interdisciplinary in nature.

Please send a CV and statement of interest/cover letter by May 31, 2021 to the editor-in-chief Sarah Stang at [at] gmail [dot] com. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about the position.
