Ding! Ding! Change here!

It’s the middle of the summer, so what better time of year than now to tell you about some shifting roles?

From 1 August, I’m very happy to be part of the new team that will edit APSA’s Journal of Political Science Education.

This continues ALPS Blog’s long-standing connection with the journal, our own Victor Asal having been editor-in-chief these last years: expect more blogging from him now he has a bunch of spare time.

For my part, I will be just a lowly Associate Editor, working with an excellent team headed up by Charity Butcher from Kennesaw State. With Alasdair Blair also based on the right side of the Atlantic, we aim to increase the profile of the journal for European colleagues in the coming years.

Right now we’re doing hand-overs, but once we’re in place we will telling you all more about how we plan to go about running and developing the journal, so do keep an eye open for that.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about submitting to JPSE, feel free to drop me a line and I’ll be happy to answer. Likewise, if you’re not sure whether to be publishing your work, then also ask: one of the things we’re particularly interested in is exactly this kind of activity that too often gets lost in the morass of our busy work lives.
