The Journal of Poverty and Social Justice (JPSJ) is looking for three to five Associate Editors, starting in October 2021 for an initial period of three years, with the possibility of renewing for a second two-year term. The Associate Editors will join the JPSJ editorial team alongside the newly appointed Joanna Mack (Open University, UK) and Marco Pomati (University of Cardiff, UK) who will be officially taking over as Co-Editors from the beginning of September 2021.
The Journal provides an internationally unique forum for leading research exploring poverty and social justice in relation to social security (broadly defined), employment, area regeneration, housing, health, education and criminal justice, as well as issues of ethnicity, gender, disability, and other social inequalities. While the journal is long-established, it is also changing rapidly, especially since the award of an Impact Factor, which has intensified the internationalisation of the journal. The incoming editors are looking to build on this internationalisation:
"With Covid-19 having so sharply exposed the impact of social inequality within and between countries, the journal has an ever more important role to play in publishing scholarly research on the underlying causes and consequences of poverty. We look forward to working with academics from across the globe to bring together work from a range of specialisms that throw light on the underlying social and economic roots of poverty and their possible policy solutions. We will be looking, in particular, to develop the journal's coverage of issues of international relevance, bringing the journal's substantial reputation in the field of poverty research in the UK to an international audience."
