Would you like to help advance scholarship in the field of educational development? We are looking for three guest editors for our TIA Special Issue on Educational Development in a Time of Crises. This is a great opportunity to work closely with the editorial team and get experience behind-the-scenes of a peer-reviewed academic journal.

We encourage those newer to the scholarship of educational development and those whose voices are typically underrepresented in educational development to apply, especially given that racial inequity is one of the crises to be featured in this special issue. You must be a current POD Network member to apply. Previous experience with publishing and reviewing processes is expected, but you do not need to be a published author to apply. No previous editorial experience is required.


In the first two weeks of December, guest editors will review 3-5 submitted manuscripts and work with the editorial team to make decisions on the articles. Guest editors will also communicate with the authors during the publication process (January-February/March).

We expect guest editors to:

  • provide constructive feedback on the merits of the work
  • manage multiple tasks and meet the deadlines listed above

Application submission

To express interest in the position, submit a brief letter to the TIA editorial team by November 6. The letter should include why you are interested in the position and your previous experience with the reviewing and publishing process in educational development (or related fields).
