DESCRIPTION

Ethics & International Affairs, the journal of the Carnegie Council, seeks a part-time intern for the fall.

The selected candidate’s tasks will include:

  • Managing the peer-review process
  • Assisting with administrative duties (e.g., ordering and tracking books for review; corresponding with authors regarding biographical notes and abstracts; drafting and mailing postproduction correspondence with journal contributors, publishers of reviewed books, and advertisers; identifying and tracking potential peer reviewers)
  • Researching information on topics relevant to manuscripts for publication in the journal
  • Depending on skill level, suggesting revisions of manuscripts for publication
  • Proofreading revised manuscripts, journal articles, and website content
  • Providing staff support at Carnegie Council events
