Call for editors

Environmental Politics is seeking three new Editors to join our core editorial team beginning in January 2024.

Environmental Politics is an international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal spanning the fields of political science, political sociology, and political theory. The journal provides a forum for the publication of original research into, and discussion and analysis of, the diverse theoretical and empirical aspects of environmental politics. The journal’s 2022 Impact Factor is 5.5, ranking 7/187 in Political Science, and 30/127 in Environmental Studies.

The journal is recruiting Editors whose areas of expertise complement those of the incoming editor-in-chief, David Konisky, and two continuing members of the editorial team, Prakash Kashwan and Sherilyn MacGregor. We seek expertise in environmental social movements, environmental political sociology, global environmental politics, and environmental policymaking and administration. Complementary expertise in areas including environmental political theory, quantitative methodologies, or public opinion, as well as in the politics of China and in the EU is also valued. Consistent with the journal’s aims and scope, we are particularly interested in how these issues intersect with politics and governance at all scales, from local to global; in all spheres of politics; and in all parts of the world, including both the Global North and Global South.

Responsibilities of Editors include:

  • Evaluating submissions, soliciting reviewers, and overseeing revisions;
  • Managing content through the journal’s online platform;
  • Participating in regular meetings of the core editorial team;
  • Working with Guest Editors to oversee publication of special issues;
  • Representing the journal in conferences and other forums;
  • Collaborating as a team member to provide strategic guidance for the journal.

We welcome expressions of interest from established scholars of environmental politics from any higher education institution. We strongly encourage applications from members of historically underrepresented groups and those whose intersectional identities and perspectives position them to support the editorial team’s commitment to an inclusive conception of environmental politics scholarship.

The journal’s Aims and Scope, and the current membership of the editorial team and Editorial Advisory Board, are available at:

The publisher provides editors with a modest stipend.

Please send expressions of interest (no more than 2 pages), along with a CV, to David Konisky, incoming Editor-in-Chief, ( Reviews will begin 15 October 2023. Applications will be considered until the positions are filled.
