Social History of Alcohol and Drugs (SHAD) seeks a new chief editor to join Dr. James Kneale (editor), Dr. David Beckingham and Dr. Holly Karibo (reviews editors). The new chief editor will succeed Dr. Dan Malleck, who will stand down in 2017.
Social History of Alcohol and Drugs is a leading international journal and covers all social and cultural aspects of substance history. The journal is published twice a year on behalf of the Alcohol and Drugs History Society.
This is an exciting time for the journal as we are currently in discussion with a new academic publisher. The new chief editor will oversee the move to more modern publication practices, including an online peer-review system and possible partnership with ProjectMUSE.
