Journal Editor Search 

The Cross Examination Debate Association is seeking applicants for the position of editor of its annual, peer-reviewed scholarly journal, Contemporary Argumentation and Debate: The Journal of the Cross Examination Debate Association.  Published since 1980, the journal carries scholarship relevant to rhetoric, argumentation, and public and intercollegiate debate.  The journal is indexed and carried in full text by EBSCO.

The new editor will serve a three-year term, beginning with the publication of Volume 28 in Fall 2008. The editor will be responsible for all aspects of planning the journal, soliciting and reviewing manuscripts, preparing camera-ready copy, and directing publication of the journal. 

The editor will be appointed by the CEDA Executive Council, with the advice and counsel of the Editor Selection Committee.   

The application packet should include a letter of application detailing the applicant's qualifications for the position and vision for the journal, a current curriculum vita, three letters of recommendation from individuals prepared to assess the applicant's qualifications for editing a scholarly journal, and samples of the applicant's own published work. CEDA provides the editor a $1,000.00 honoraria for the position per year upon publication of the journal which can defray any overhead assumed by the Editor or their institution or be taken simply as a stipend.  

Applicants should send the committee an intent-to-apply e-mail message by Tuesday November 14, 2006 (Tuesday of NCA convention in San Antonio). Direct the message to kelly.mcdonald at asu.edu. 

The deadline for receiving a complete application packet is March 1, 2007. Please direct all application materials to:
