Job Announcement: Book Review Editor Need for E&S

Book Review Editor Needed for Enterprise & Society


Enterprise & Society: The International Journal of Business History, which is published for the Business History Conference by Cambridge University Press, is looking for a book review editor to replace Richard Weiner who will step down in June 2017. The book review editor works closely with the editor of the journal, Andrew Popp, and serves as a member of the editorial board for the journal.

From its foundation, the journal's book review section has been distinguished not only by the quality of its reviews but also by the range of books that it has covered. The ideal candidate for the position will carry on and extend this tradition. S/he will be someone with broad intellectual interests and multiple networks in the field of business history and related fields. S/he will have strong administrative and organizational skills.  It should be noted that, however, that much of the administration of the book review process is conducted electronically. As a result, the journal uses a comprehensive submission and editing server, Scholar One, which allows the book review editor to invite, receive, and edit reviews online and automates the creation of reminders for reviewers. Based on the experience of previous book review editors, the new editor will require approximately 20 hours of time (or a graduate student's time) per month to request books, log those received, and ship them to reviewers. The position includes a modest honorarium and budget. 

To be considered for the position of book review editor, please send a cover letter, which outlines your interest and aptitude for the job, together with a curriculum vitae to Louis Hyman, Chair, Print Media Oversight Committee of the Business History Conference at

All applications must be received by July 1, 2017.  Potential applicants interested in learning more are welcome to contact either Roger Horowitz, BHC Secretary-Treasurer at or Carol Lockman, Enterprise & Society Managing Editor, at
