Environmental History Review


Review of applications to begin on: February 1, 2024

The American Society for Environmental History seeks applicants to serve as Editor of the new digital journal Environmental History Review for a renewable three-year term beginning July 2024. 

The Environmental History Review (EHR) will be the open-access digital publication of the American Society for Environmental History, existing as a space to exchange knowledge, respond to contemporary issues, and explore topics that connect the environmental present with its past. EHR’s goals include the fast-paced publication of work by a wide range of environmental historians  in formats and media that go beyond standard academic articles and reviews. While the Environmental History Review will include both peer-reviewed and non-peer reviewed work, it will complement rather than compete with the work of Environmental History. The initial goal will be to publish content twice a week and provide a space to cultivate community. 

The editor-in-chief will work with two to three associate editors and will be paid an annual stipend of $6000. The associate editors as well as the social media outreach coordinator will also be compensated.


The ideal candidate must have:

      • Recognized expertise in the field, 
      • A compelling vision for the future of the journal and the field,
      • Managerial, organizational, editorial, and digital media skills to oversee the editorial cycle, meet deadlines, and work with publishing professionals,
      • The ability to attract established and new scholars to contribute to the journal,
      • Tact in communicating with authors and staff, and
      • Membership in the ASEH.

Application Materials

The application package must include:

  • Vision Statement that cohesively answers the following questions:
    • Where do you envision the Environmental History Review six years from now? 
    • How will the EHR differ from similar digital journals?
    • How do you plan to collaborate and build relationships with Environmental History and other environmental history publications and efforts?
    • Why are you considering this role at this moment in your career?
  • Curriculum vitae that highlights publications, editorial experience, and links to any digital portfolios

      Search Procedure
