Call for Editorial Staff for the International Journal of Interpreter EducationGreetings CIT Members,The Conference of Interpreter Trainers (CIT) Board of Directors is announcing several exciting changes at the International Journal of Interpreter Education. First, CIT is now partnering with Clemson University Press to publish future issues of IJIE. We are transitioning to a publisher-provided system for submitting and publishing through BePress. This user-friendly, online system will streamline manuscript submission, the peer-review process, and publication. CIT is continuing to provide open access to the journal, and all previous issues of IJIE are being migrated to this portal for a one-stop-shop experience! Secondly, we would like to thank Ineke Crezee and George Major for their work over the last several years as co-editors of the journal. Both have announced that they are ready to transition leadership to a new editor. Therefore, we are looking to revise the editorial structure of IJIE with this call for editorial staff. Mainly, the CIT Board will appoint a Main Editor and has created the new positions of Managing Editor and Assistant Editor for the journal. Third, in addition to the above changes, the CIT Board is revisiting the makeup of the Editorial Board. We wish to also thank all current Editorial Board Members for their service. We will be reaching out to each of them to see if they would like to continue to serve. The CIT Board is committed to recruiting new Editorial Board Members as well. We are sharing position descriptions here. If you are interested in serving, please email a letter of interest indicating which position you would like to fill and a copy of your current CV highlighting your relevant skills to our current Director of Research and Publications, Danielle Hunt, at publications@cit-asl.org. She is also available to answer any questions that you might have.Committing to continuing our support of the dissemination of research in the field of interpreter education,The Conference of Interpreter Trainers (CIT) Board of Directors ...
