New Editor-in-Chief Sought for the Library of Flight Book Series Written 14 February 2018


Important Announcement: New Editor-in-Chief Sought for the Library of Flight Book Series

AIAA is seeking an outstanding candidate for this position, to assume the responsibilities of Editor-in-Chief of the Library of Flight series in late spring 2018. The chosen candidate will assume the editorship at an exciting time as AIAA continues to expand its ability to support e-books and other electronic content, along with publishing a range of titles in traditional, print format.

The Library of Flight series encompasses a wide variety of general-interest and reference books, including case studies. Appropriate subjects include the history and economics of aerospace as well as design, development, and management of aircraft and space programs. A successful series Editor-in-Chief will have a broad range of interests beyond strictly technical aerospace topics, and some familiarity with book publishing is preferred. The editor works closely with AIAA Headquarters staff to identify new topics and potential authors, maintain high-quality print and electronic content, and promote the series and AIAA’s publishing program as a whole. He or she evaluates book proposals and manuscript submissions, recommends outside manuscript reviewers, and works with AIAA staff to ensure that all proposals are processed in a fair and timely manner.

Interested candidates are invited to submit resumes and letters of application for consideration. A selection committee will seek candidates and review all applications received. A final recommendation will be made to the AIAA Board of Trustees for approval. This is an open process, and the final selection will be made only on the basis of the applicants’ merits. All candidates will be notified of the final decision. Questions may be referred to Heather Brennan, Director, Publications

Applications are due 1 April 2018. The full series scope and complete application requirements will be available in Aerospace Research on the landing page for Library of Flight
