Search for the next editors of HIMALAYA
The Executive Council of the Association for Nepal and Himalayan Studies (ANHS) is seeking an editor for its biannual, open access, peer-reviewed journal, HIMALAYA.
Interdisciplinary and trans-regional in scope, HIMALAYA covers all aspects of Himalayan studies, including the humanities and creative arts. HIMALAYA publishes original research articles, short field reports, book and film reviews, reports on meetings and conferences, alongside literature and photo essays from the region. HIMALAYA is the continuation of the Himalayan Research Bulletin (1981–2003) and the Nepal Studies Association Newsletter (1972– 1980). The Association welcomes applications from potential editors from all regions of the world and all disciplinary and regional diversity addressed by HIMALAYA.
The editorship is a multi-year term beginning Summer 2020. The chosen candidate is expected to shadow the current editors from end of 2019 onwards. Candidates for this position will likely be mid- to senior-career scholars with a strong research record and tenure at their institution. Some editorial experience, relevant expertise, and an ability to bridge different disciplinary approaches to research are required. In recognition of the journal’s successful history of co- editorship, the committee welcomes joint applications from co-editors.
The journal is supported by an editorial and production collective, and an active international editorial board. HIMALAYA is published twice a year—in the late Spring and late Fall— simultaneously online and in print. Each issue contains between 8-12 peer-reviewed articles, 2- 3 shorter ‘perspectives’ articles, original literature from or about the Himalayan region, contemporary artwork and a series of reviews of conferences, exhibits, and recent publications.

Interested candidates are requested to submit a cover letter outlining their reasons for seeking the position, their vision for the future of the journal, and the role that they would like to play in achieving that vision, alongside a curriculum vitae including names of two referees to the current co-editors, Mona Bhan and David Citrin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
