CALL FOR ASSOCIATE EDITORS
Schole: A Journal of Leisure Studies and Recreation Education is seeking Associate Editors to serve a three-year term. Schole is a refereed publication of the Education Network. Schole was established to disseminate knowledge related to park and recreation courses, curricula, and teaching. Manuscripts address a wide variety of issues concerning undergraduate and graduate education such as curriculum planning, curriculum design, future employment requirements, trends and their impacts, student and faculty profiles, course content, fieldwork and internships, leisure and the humanities, teaching methods, accreditation, community education and tenure and promotion, book reviews, and classroom learning activities.
The new Associate Editors will be selected to serve on the Editorial Board for the 2013–2015 issues of the journal.
Duties of an Associate Editor include managing the review process for one to three manuscripts annually. Associate Editors review each manuscript as well as obtain two additional reviews. Associate Editors then synthesize the reviewers’ comments and provide a recommendation for publication to the Co-Editors. Associate Editors also provide feedback to the Co-Editor’s concerning all aspects of the editorial process.
