SAGE Publishing and SLGR’s sponsor, SIAM, are seeking proposals for the editorship of SLGR, for the term beginning January 1, 2021.
State and Local Government Review (SLGR), peer-reviewed and published quarterly, provides a forum for the exchange of ideas among practitioners and academics that contributes to the knowledge and practice of state and local government politics, policy, and management. Of particular interest in SLGR are articles that focus on state and local governments and those that explore the intergovernmental dimensions of public-sector activity.
Founded by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government of the University of Georgia, State and Local Government Review is the official journal of the Section on Intergovernmental Administration and Management (SIAM) of the American Society for Public Administration. Since 1968 the Review has provided a forum for the exchange of ideas among practitioners and academics that contributes to the knowledge and practice of state and local government politics, policy, and management. Like the Vinson Institute, SIAM has an interest not only in state and local government, but also in the effective interaction among public officials in a federal system. It seeks to foster the dissemination of information about research and experience that contributes to the understanding and improvement of the intergovernmental system.
The Editor will be responsible for soliciting, reviewing, and making final decisions on submissions to the journal, and will manage all aspects of the publication and review process using the Manuscript Central electronic submission and review platform. Editor is expected to maintain timely and effective communication, advance journal performance, and work towards upholding SLGR’s high-quality standard.
In their proposals, candidates should discuss their vision for SLGR and how the journal can advance an interdisciplinary study of state and local government. They should also discuss how they will identify and promote new perspectives for the student of state and local government—including subtopics, research questions, framing, terminology, theoretical approaches, methodology, and data sources.
Applicants should send a letter of application which includes their vision for the future of the journal and a description of their qualifications for the editorship. Applicants should also include copies of their CV.
Applications, nominations, and requests for additional information should be sent electronically to Ian Balisy, Associate Editor, at Ian.Balisy@sagepub.com. Please put “SLGR Editor Application” in the subject line of your email.
