Call for a new proofreader for Architectural Histories. The open access journal of the EAHN.
Architectural Histories is the online open access journal of the EAHN, published by Ubiquity Press. Since its establishment in 2011, Architectural Histories has worked with an in-house proofreader to help ensure the quality of its output. The Editorial Board now seeks to appoint a new Proofreader.
The Proofreader checks the page proofs of all articles on typos and consistency with the house style guide after the final stage of copy-editing. The proofread is the final step in the journal’s system of quality control. The Proofreader collates his/her own corrections with those of the author, sends them back to the typesetter, and signals to the Editor-in-Chief whether the article is ready for publication or requires further proofing.
The ideal candidate combines an eagle’s eye for detail with a capacity to read several languages besides English. He or she is proactive when it comes to verifying the consistency, accuracy and completeness of the text, references and captions provided by the author and copy-editor, this on the basis of a deep familiarity with the journal’s style guide.
The Proofreader will gain an intimate knowledge of the content of the journal, participate in the lively network of scholars that shape the journal as authors or editors, and become part of the diverse research community of EAHN. Like the other editorial positions, the work of the proofreader is not remunerated.
Applications should consist of a letter of application and a CV (max. 3 pages), to be emailed to Petra Brouwer, the Editor-in-Chief (firstname.lastname@example.org), and received no later than 31st March 2017. The appointment will start on 1st May.
