If you are interested in working as part of the RRPE’s Editorial Board, please contact the Managing Editor, Enid Arvidson at email@example.com, by no later than May 1 of the year you wish to run for the Board, and plan to send your election statement of no more than 250 words by no later than June 1.
Please review the RRPE Aims and Scope to ensure you can contribute to the journal—candidates should have expertise, and an emerging or established scholarly record, in at least two or three areas of radical political economics. You must be a member of URPE to stand for election (join URPE). Editorial Board members are elected by the URPE membership—only members of URPE may vote in Editorial Board elections.
The journal, and Editorial Board, function collectively. Duties of Editorial Board members include: reviewing an average of one manuscript per month (12 manuscripts/year); serving on Special Issue Collectives; serving on various sub-committees; attending two meetings a year (in January at the ASSA conference, and in April usually in NYC).
Serving on the Editorial Board is a major commitment, but is also rewarding since it is an important way to contribute to URPE. If you are interested in running, please download this detailed file with important additional information (Candidate Information about Running).
RRPE Editorial Board Elections take place online every July. Terms begin in September and run for three years.
Election statements are posted on the URPE/RRPE website and included with the ballots.
The 2021 RRPE Editorial Board elections are now concluded. There were eight open slots, and nine candidates running for these eight slots. Newly elected and re-elected to the Editorial Board are: David Barkin, Annina Kaltenbrunner, Mehrene Larudee, Junshang Liang (newly elected), Gary Mongiovi, Keston Perry (newly elected), Paddy Quick, and Mary Wrenn. With regret, Sabri Öncü was not elected—the Board thanks him for running and his interest in serving on the Editorial Board, and hope these results do not discourage him from contributing to RRPE/URPE in other ways. The Board also thanks outgoing Editorial Board members—Waquar Ahmed and Zoe Sherman—for their many valuable contributions while serving on the Board, and hope they will continue to contribute to RRPE/URPE in other ways. Terms start in September 2021 and run for three years.
