The Journal of Aeronautical History is the Society’s free-to-access online publication covering all aspects of aerospace history and the development of aircraft and aeronautical engineering. About five to ten peer-reviewed papers are published annually.

The Journal is seeking a new Editor to receive papers submitted for consideration and passes them for review to appropriate members of an established Editorial Board or Specialist reviewer, liaising with the author throughout the peer-review process. Once approved for publication, the Editor lays out the paper (in Word) in the correct house style for publication on the Society’s website, sourcing appropriate images where necessary (the National Aerospace Library’s photographic archive is very helpful).

Do you have these skills?

If you are enthusiastic, have a good knowledge of aerospace history, an excellent standard of written English and are looking for the satisfaction of giving back and contributing to learned debate, this could be for you.

To ease yourself in, the current Editor proposes a one to two year overlap.
