Founded in 2012, Political Violence @ a Glance is an award-winning, peer-reviewed online magazine that explores timely topics and scholarly research on political violence and its alternatives. PV@Glance has an international readership, with thousands of subscribers and hundreds of thousands of annual page views. It is among the premier venues through which scholars of political violence communicate the relevance of their findings to a wider scholarly and public audience.

The current editors of PV@Glance, Erica Chenoweth, Barbara Walter, and Joseph K. Young, seek applications for a new editorial team. The new editorial team would assume editorial and management responsibilities for PV@Glance in September 2023, with the existing team providing transitional support during summer 2023.

Responsibilities include:

  • Soliciting and encouraging submissions;
  • Managing the receipt and review of submissions and selecting posts;
  • Leading the strategic development of the magazine with a particular focus on maintaining quality and impact;
  • Supporting and maintaining communications with the managing editors, who liaise with authors and manage revisions according to quality and house style;
  • Amplifying content on social media;
  • Exploring and experimenting with multimedia, such as webinars, podcasts, and other formats;
  • Developing strategic partnerships with other scholarly outlets and institutions, such as scholarly journals or blogs, to generate consistent content.
  • Hiring and overseeing part-time editorial staff.
  • Maintaining the website and domain.

Successful applicants will hold secure positions at one or more academic institutions and receive sufficient resources from their home institutions to support their editorial tasks.

Those interested in assuming editorship of PV@Glance should submit CVs of proposed editorial team members along with a brief letter that addresses the team’s qualifications and experience, institutional support, and aims and vision for PV@Glance going forward.

Proposals must be received by May 25, 2023, for full consideration. Applications (or questions about the role or application process) should be submitted to PVG Managing Editor Lindsay Morgan at
