    FACETS is looking for a Co-Editor-in-Chief to help manage the body of interdisciplinary work submitted to the journal, and to provide leadership as the journal seeks to expand its scope to include more interdisciplinary social science research. FACETS currently has two Co-Editors-in-Chief who work together to lead and grow the journal, bringing the total to three with the addition of this role. Co-Editor-in-Chief is a volunteer position.

    The journal

    FACETS is Canada’s first multidisciplinary open access science journal. Established in 2016, it is published by Canadian Science Publishing, Canada's independent, not-for-profit publisher of international scientific journals. FACETS is the official journal of the Royal Society of Canada’s Academy of Science, and is also affiliated with the Canadian Science Policy Centre, the Canadian Society of Ecology and Evolution, the Canadian Society of Vertebrate Palaeontology, and the Society of Canadian Aquatic Sciences.

    FACETS publishes rigorously vetted multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research, much of which seeks to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). FACETS primarily features original research, but also accommodates reviews, retrospectives, thought pieces, and articles on the application of scientific knowledge to policy, industry, management, and public interests.

    The role

    The Co-Editor-in-Chief is responsible for curating journal content, shaping editorial priorities, and guiding journal development. This involves:

    working with the journal team on editorial priorities and journal direction, and on strategies to grow the journal, enhance its reputation, and attract high-quality content;

    applying their expertise to help the journal team propel FACETS' growth in integrative social science research;

    working with a group of Senior Editors to uphold the high quality of articles published in the journal by maintaining editorial standards and advising on manuscripts during peer review as needed;

    selecting and working with a board of editors who represent the diverse disciplines and populations the journal serves, particularly those with the appropriate expertise in integrative social science research;

    holding the journal to a high standard of peer review and ethical best practice in research and reporting;

    building relationships and working with journal stakeholders to expand author and reviewer pools that include more diverse voices and perspectives.

    The Co-Editor-in-Chief reports to the Executive Editor-in-Chief at Canadian Science Publishing.

    What we’re looking for

    The ideal Co-Editor-in-Chief for FACETS:

    • has direct experience with social science methods and interdisciplinary research (familiarity working with Indigenous communities and knowledges would be helpful but not necessary for this role);
    • cultivates a broad network of contacts and collaborators, and can be a confident champion for the journal within their own circles and when reaching out to new, previously excluded or untapped communities;
    • has experience as an editor, and is deeply familiar with research, peer review, and publication ethics;
    • supports open science and actively seeks to advance equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility within their sphere;
    • is an effective communicator with a collaborative work style; and
    • can dedicate time on a regular basis to help grow a thriving and dynamic journal.

    Canadian Science Publishing is committed to equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (EDIA), and seeks to ensure that journal editorial boards reflect the diverse identities and characteristics of its research communities. We encourage applicants to highlight any additional information about their background that would contribute to this diversity of perspective and lived experience.

    Applications should include:

    • Full CV
    • A letter (maximum 2 pages) including:
    • a summary of your editorial experience and why you are interested in this role
    • a brief description of your vision and goals for the journal over the next few years, including how you would build on the journal's success and how you would promote EDIA within the journal

    Applications and nominations are due by May 1, 2024.

    The term start and length of term are negotiable.

    Applications and nominations should be sent to Jenny Crick (

    When: Thursday, February 22, 12:30-1:30pm

    Room: Barkers Point A 

    “What do you research?” A seemingly simple question, or not. Whether you’re describing what you plan to do, what you did, or what happened, communicating your research takes thought and reflection. Students and early-career professionals are invited to a lunch-hour event where breakout groups will discuss and craft content to use or build upon to communicate their research. 


    Breakout groups will commence by 1 pm, following time dedicated for socializing over lunch. The groups will be led by:

    Nathanael Bergbusch, PhD student, University of Waterloo 

    Natalie Rideout, PhD student, University of New Brunswick  

    Hannah Harrison, Assistant Professor, Dalhousie University 

    Natalie Sopinka, Journal Development Specialist, Canadian Science Publishing 


    Please note this event is limited to 55 participants. 

    Co-organized by the SCAS Student and Early-Career Professional Committee, Canadian River Institute Student Leadership Committee, and Canadian Science Publishing.
