The Journal of Human Services is published once per year by the National Organization for Human Services and distributes peer-reviewed research articles, conceptual pieces, brief notes, and book reviews to an audience of educators, students, and practitioners.

The Journal Editorial Staff is seeking an additional Associate Editor to manage a load of approximately 15 manuscripts each year, handling decisions on those manuscripts and conducting communication with authors and reviewers. 

The candidate for the position should have: 

a) an earned doctoral degree in a helping field, 

b) at least five peer-reviewed publications in print, 

c) previous experience on a journal review board (i.e., reviewing manuscripts), and 

d) knowledge of the peer-review and journal publication process. 

The Editorial Staff hopes to train the selected candidate over the summer during a probationary period to prepare them for full responsibilities in the fall. The position is work-intense during the spring semester when the Journal is released and requires weekly attention throughout the year. The weekly time commitment is variable, ranging from approximately 1-5 hours.
