Join the Editorial Review Board of the Journal of Colorism Studies

The Editorial Team of the Journal of Colorism Studies invites applications for Editorial Review Board members. Working with members of the Editorial Advisory Board, members of the Editorial Review Board will review journal submissions and ensure that the journal responds timely to submissions.

The Editorial Review Board will consist of members willing to commit to reviewing articles two times each year and are responsible for reviewing submissions for accuracy, clarity, and research rigor; identifying the strengths and weaknesses of submissions; providing detailed comments on reviewed submissions, and providing recommendations for accepting or rejecting manuscripts for publication.  Note: Members will perform functions virtually.

Composition of the Editorial Review Board includes a wide variety of members representing the community, including organizational leaders, change agents, and educators from all sectors including scholars consisting of early career through senior academics. Members should possess a master’s and/or doctorate in topics published by the journal and have equivalent experience in a relevant subject. We invite and encourage graduate students to submit applications.

The mission of JOCS is to bridge the gap between academia and communities of color by focusing on interdisciplinary issues/topics relative to colorism, diversity, girls and women of color, mixed race identity, identity issues, race, racism, and other societal ills affecting people of color psychologically, emotionally, physically and socially.

Continued Success!
