EiCs for Scandinavian Economic History Reivew

The Scandinavian economic history review

Call for two positions as editor-in-chief

The Scandinavian Economic History Review is the leading economic history journal in Scandinavia. It has been published by the Scandinavian Society for Economic and Social History since 1953. The journal publishes articles and reviews in the fields of economic, business, and social history with a particular focus on the Nordic countries and the Baltic region. The journal also publishes contributions from closely related fields, such as demographic and labor history, as well as articles dealing with theoretical and methodological issues. The editors in chief, and the editorial office, rotate between Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark by every three years. By 2023, it is time for the Swedish community to host the editorial office.

The Scandinavian Society for Economic and Social History is now looking for two new editors-in-chief for the journal. As editor-in-chief, you are responsible for the content and direction of the journal and for the contact with the publishing house Taylor and Francis. You also have the mandate to delegate the responsibility of manuscripts to the three associate editors. The position equals about ten percent of full-time, which should be financed by the editor’s home department.
To be eligible for the position of editor-in-chief you have to have a doctoral degree in economic history and be based at a Swedish University. You should have documented knowledge about Scandinavian economic history and extensive experience in publishing articles in high-quality academic journals and documented experience in peer-reviewing papers for academic journals. Capacity to collaborate with others and organizational skills are required to be considered for the position. Over the years, the majority of editors-in-chief have been male. The Scandinavian Society for Economic and Social History therefore especially welcomes women to apply for the position.

The application should be sent to erik.green@ekh.lu.se, and include the following:
