A select number of student volunteers are granted the opportunity to work as editorial liaisons for the Journal of Community Engagement and Scholarship. Editorial liaisons gain experience in the daily activities and processes involved in publication of a peer-reviewed academic journal.
The position is closely involved with production of the student piece included in every issue of JCES. In working to produce the student section, editorial liaisons are responsible for solicitation of manuscripts, including networking both at conferences and on campus, development of the graduate student editorial board, review of student-submitted manuscripts, and recommendations to the editor for publication of student authored manuscripts.
In addition, editorial liaisons work with the JCES Assistant to the Editor in matching submitted manuscripts with potential reviewers, corresponding with authors, and interaction with the reviewers and editorial board.
