Call for New Editor/Editorial Team: Problems of Post-Communism
- 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 âprivatizedâ 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
Universityâs 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
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.
