      Problems of Post-Communism

      Call for a New Editor/Editorial Team


      The publisher of the bimonthly Problems of Post-Communism is looking for
      a new editorial home for the journal and invites inquiries and proposals
      from prospective editors.

      Problems of Post-Communism is the “privatized” successor to the
      invaluable Problems of Communism, launched in 1952. When the USIA
      abruptly terminated publication of Problems of Communism, publisher M.E.
      Sharpe invited James R. Millar to relaunch the journal as a scholarly
      but also timely, policy-focused publication. George Washington
      University’s Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies at
      the Elliott School of International Affairs provided the journal with an
      editorial home for a decade. In 2003 Robert T. Huber took the helm and
      the journal moved to the National Council for Eurasian and East European
      Research. Ann E. Robertson has served as managing editor of the journal
      for both teams. Ronald H. Linden of the University of Pittsburgh joined
      as associate editor in 2006.

      The mission of Problems of Post-Communism is to provide reliable
      information, readable analysis, and lively debate about the communist
      and post-communist world, with an emphasis on thoughtful but timely
      coverage of current economic, political, and international issues. It
      serves as a meeting ground for scholars, researchers, and policy makers
      interested in reaching a broad audience of readers both inside and
      outside the academy. The journal has always been an important resource
      for students.

      Essential assets for the new editor or editorial team include
      appropriate academic credentials and experience, familiarity with
      scholarly publishing conventions, a commitment to effective
      communication with a broad readership, a strong network of currently
      active researchers and scholars involved in the region (widely defined),
      and a compatible and actively supportive institutional base. M.E. Sharpe
      maintains an experienced, proficient, multilingual publishing staff that
      takes the journal from copyediting through to manufacture, marketing,
      and distribution in both print and electronic formats.


      Please direct inquiries to Patricia A. Kolb, VP and Editorial Director,
      M.E. Sharpe, Inc.
