        Subject: call for nominations

Call for nominations and expressions of interest:
Book Reviews Editor, Interdisciplinary Science Reviews

The journal

Interdisciplinary Science Reviews is an international quarterly journal 
devoted to conceptual bridge-building among the disciplines of the 
physical, biological and social sciences, engineering and technology, 
mathematics, medicine, humanities and arts. ISR seeks out contributions 
that measure up to the highest excellence in scholarship but that also 
speak to an audience of intelligent non-specialists. It actively 
explores the differing trajectories of the disciplines and practices in 
its purview, to clarify what each is attempting to do in its own terms, 
so that constructive dialogue across them is strengthened. It focuses on 
individual and collaborative research across disciplines that 
nevertheless respects disciplinary variation.

Most issues of ISR are thematic and are the immediate responsibility of 
guest editors who are expert in the disciplinary areas of the designated 
theme. Submissions are normally peer-reviewed in the usual double-blind 

The position

The Book Reviews Editor is responsible for working with the Editor and 
guest editors and with publishers to assemble reviews of books across 
the disciplines but, whenever possible, related to the theme of the 
issue. Approximately ten per cent of each issue, that is, nine or ten 
pages, is allocated to book reviews. The format may range from extended 
"essay reviews" to more concise reviews of single or groups of books.

The position is without remuneration. It offers the opportunity to work 
with leading figures in helping to bring greater understanding and 
prominence to work across the scientific, humanistic and artistic 

Interested individuals should contact the Editor.
