Many AFEE and AFIT members regularly attend the AFIT sessions at the WSSA conference. In 2022 we will be meeting in person at the Hilton Denver City Center -- March 30, 2022, through April 2, 2022. Save the date.

That conference is associated with the Social Science Journal and we have often had an AFIT member on the WSSA board. Perhaps this unpaid opening for a book review editor will interest a young AFEE or AFIT member? Please see the note below for more information.

The Western Social Science Association seeks a book review editor for the Social Science Journal. There are 4 volumes of the Journal per year, and each contains about 3-5 book reviews (on average). The book review editor works closely with the Journal’s two editors.

The book review editor works with any other reviews that come through Editorial Manager. This is an unpaid service position. For additional details, see the description below. The Western Social Science Association invites and encourages applications from members of all underrepresented groups.
