School Psychology Quarterly is committed to publishing empirical studies and literature reviews of the psychology of education and services for children in school settings, encompassing a full range of methodologies and orientations, including educational, cognitive, social, cognitive behavioral, preventive, cross-cultural, and developmental perspectives. Focusing primarily on children, youth, and the adults who serve them, School Psychology Quarterly publishes research pertaining to the education of populations across the life span.

The ideal candidate will be someone who is knowledgeable in the broad domains of the psychology of education and services for children in school settings. In particular, we seek nominees who are scholarly and highly respected for their research, in addition to being informed about current scientific activity in the field. Equally important is the ability to be a good manager and maintain the level of work required to sustain the journal's production for the 5-year term.

In addition to the obvious editorial activities, responsibilities include managing a budget, meeting deadlines, and filing reports to APA. The editor must exercise good judgment in the selection of consulting editors and reviewers and be able to communicate editorial decisions effectively and sensitively to diverse authors. Above all, the editor is expected to maintain the highest ethical and scientific standards with respect to scientific publication.

Please note that participation by members of underrepresented groups in the publication process is encouraged and will be welcomed. Self-nominations are also encouraged.

The new Editor will be expected to join APA and Division 16 if not already a member. All other qualifications being equal, preference will be given to candidates who have been a member of Division 16 for at least two years.
