Call for Associate Editors and Copyeditors within JEPS!

June 11, 2023 secretary 0 Comments

The Journal of European Psychology Students (JEPS) is an open-access, double-blind, peer-reviewed journal that is run by highly motivated European psychology students who are passionate about research. JEPS has been publishing the research of psychology students since 2009. The uniqueness of JEPS lies in the fact that it is run by students for the students.

JEPS offers an educational experience to the authors, as it gives them the opportunity to improve their academic writing and scientific skills. The authors get familiarized with the publishing process and are provided with extensive feedback from professional editors and reviewers. JEPS provides students with the opportunity to share their research, as well as a taste of how the scientific community works. Our editorial team supports the student authors to achieve their goals and take the first step towards a career in science.

JEPS is currently expanding its editorial board by recruiting Associate Editors and Copyeditors!


Position of Associate Editors

We are looking for Associate Editors with expertise in clinical, social or organizational/work psychology. As an Associate Editor, you are to recruit Reviewers for the manuscripts you will be responsible for. Both the Reviewer and yourself will review the author’s work and provide them with feedback. Then, you may proceed to make an editorial decision. During this process, a JEPS Editor will be collaborating with you in order to assist you along the way and help where possible. 

As an Associate Editor, your workload will be determined by your field of expertise and by the number of received students’ submissions. Associate Editors usually take under their responsibility 1-3 manuscripts per year.



  • Holding or currently pursuing a PhD degree in Psychology or a closely related discipline
  • Proficiency in English
  • Experience or familiarity with publishing scientific work*

*Experience with reviewing academic manuscripts is not a prerequisite but will be considered an advantage.

Further information on JEPS, its publication process, procedures and policies, as well as a more detailed Task Description, can be found on the JEPS website and in the Role Description document for Associate Editors.
