The editorial board for Mind Pad, the publication written, edited and published by the CPA section for students, changes over every year in September. A call for applications for various positions is released in August, and the editorial board is finalized by mid-to-late September.
Getting involved is an opportunity for students to experience both the writing and the formal reviewing process that every psychologist (and psychologist in training!) must go through. Mind Pad aims to publish material that is of interest to all who are practicing and studying psychology, but targets students in particular.
Positions on the editorial board include two Associate Editors and a panel of Reviewers.
Associate Editors are responsible for managing manuscripts submitted to the journal, selecting reviewers, providing authors with feedback on their submission, and help with the ultimate decision on each manuscript. Reviewers are responsible for reviewing and editing articles and evaluating the submissions in terms of content, research methodology, style, and grammar.
The term for all positions is 1 year.
Experience in editing or peer reviewing is an asset but not required. We encourage students in psychology, either English, Francophone, to apply for positions. The application must be submitted to Mind Pad’s Editor-in-Chief before the deadline.
Please note that Associate Editor positions are reserved for graduate students, while both undergraduate and graduate students can participate as Reviewers.
The application package must include:
- A cover letter detailing your interest in the position and corresponding qualifications;
- An updated CV
Applications are currently closed. The call for applications will be emailed to all CPA Student Affiliates who are also members of the Section for Students in August.
