The editors of the Irish Yearbook of International Law welcome expressions of interest from persons interested in taking on the role of Editor in Chief.
Since its foundation, the Yearbook has always had two Joint Editors in Chief, supported by an editorial board, book review editor, and advisory committee. Professor Siobhán Mullally has edited the Yearbook since its inaugural volume (2006 Yearbook, published 2008), and Prof. Fiona de Londras has acted as Joint Editor in Chief since the 2011Yearbook (published 2013).
The primary responsibilities of the Editors in Chief are to liaise with the publisher (Hart Bloomsbury), generate and manage article submissions, oversee the commissioning and editing of correspondents’ reports, liaise with the book review editor to oversee generation of book reviews, and identify and collate the key documents on Ireland and international law that are published in each volume.
The IYIL is published once per year, and the new Editors in Chief should be in place to take the lead on the 2020 Yearbook (to be published in 2021). The outgoing Editors in Chief will provide transitional support.
Expressions of interest in the form of a cover letter and CV should be sent to the outgoing editors, Prof Siobhan Mullally (Siobhan.firstname.lastname@example.org) and Prof Fiona de Londras (email@example.com) by August 30th, 2020. Decisions will be communicated by mid-September.
We welcome combined expressions of interest from persons proposing to act as Joint Editors in Chief, or expressions of interest from individuals. In the latter case, we may propose the role be shared between two or more persons who express an interest.
