Job Description

The Saharan is pleased to invite applications for Editorial Board members. The journal is seeking to
establish itself as the leading scholarly voice for high quality research on Africa, and relies on its peer reviewers to ensure that submitted articles meet the strictest academic standards.
Role: The Editorial Board is a meaningful way for both emerging and established academics to
become involved in the on-going success of the journal, while playing an active part in developing
African and Africa-related scholarly research and innovation. Applicants should be able to
demonstrate evidence of journal publication and an interest and commitment to our editorial vision.
We encourage applications from scholars who are willing to dedicate their time and expertise to
reviewing articles no more than twice a year, and who are able to commit on a voluntary basis for a
period of three years.
Benefits: Being a member of the Editorial Board will allow for the professional involvement and
academic input associated with journal publishing. The Saharan will publicly recognise continued
support by crediting the members’ valuable contribution in print and on our website. More
importantly, being part of the Editorial Board will allow academics with a passion for Africa to make an invaluable contribution to development, research, publishing and cultural growth on the great
continent.
Eligibility: We envisage that the Editorial Board will be made up of high-profile academics from a
diversity of backgrounds and with wide-ranging research interests. However, we would particularly
welcome scholars ranging from early career research through to retired academics with a specific
passion for, and expertise in, Africa. Academics from the continent and the diaspora are encouraged to apply.
