The RTPI is seeking to appoint a chair person to the editorial board of the RTPI Library Series.
The RTPI Library Series examines all aspects of spatial planning theory and practice from a comparative and international perspective. The series aims to:
- Explore the dimensions of spatial planning and urbanism in relation to people, place, space and environment.
- Develop the theoretical and methodological foundations of planning.
- Investigate the relationship between theory and practice.
- Examine the contribution of planners to resolving social, economic and environmental concerns.
See the Routledge website for details of all titles in the series.
The editorial board comprises three persons who are in planning schools around the world. The board’s role is to look at book proposals in consultation with the publisher and decide which ones to publish in the Series. This vacancy refers to the chair role and the role representing the RTPI in particular and the UK and Ireland.
The publishers send new proposals to the series editors for initial approval. If they agree to move forward, the book is sent for a formal peer review with two or three external readers. Assuming those reviews are supportive, the book is approved by an internal Routledge publications committee and we offer a contract. Before publication, manuscripts are reviewed by one of the series editors to ensure they are demonstrating the highest quality scholarship.
Editorial board members enter into a contract with the publishers and receive a small share in the royalties of books.
Corporate membership of the RTPI
Active publication record (with at least one book)
Strong active academic network (enabling you to bring in new proposals)

We welcome applications from all those who satisfy the essential criteria. Applications should comprise a CV and short (one page) covering letter. They should be received by 5 pm 16 October 2020 and should be sent to email@example.com
