Soon-to-retire UH Press Journals Manager Joel Bradshaw is a man with too many hometowns and an incurable travel bug. The son of missionaries to Japan, he first visited Hawai‘i as a toddler aboard the SS President Cleveland in 1950. He counts his first Japanese hometown as Kyoto, where he spent his elementary-school years, and his first American hometown as Winchester, VA (his mother’s hometown), where he attended junior high school. But he also claims Kobe, where he went to high school at Canadian Academy, and Hiroshima, where he spent holidays and summers at home.
The University of Hawai‘i Press is seeking an energetic and innovative professional with a strong background in academic publishing to serve as a Managing Editor in its Editorial Department, which publishes 60-70 books each year with a strong regional focus on Asia and the Pacific. This Managing Editor will first train with one of the Managing Editors, who plans to retire in March 2014, after which the new Managing Editor will assume full responsibilities.
The Managing Editor (1) reviews manuscripts for substantive and stylistic problems and adherence to The Chicago Manual of Style and advises authors regarding required alterations and revisions of manuscripts, page proof, and indexes; (2) reviews the work of freelance copy editors, proofreaders, and indexers; (3) establishes Press guidelines for editorial style and procedures, regularly researching and implementing updates to accommodate changes in scholarly standards and/or technology; (4) analyzes manuscripts to ensure conformity to technical requirements and establish the required level of editing; instructs outside project managers and freelance copy editors regarding specific stylistic and substantive questions.
In short, the Managing Editor exercises sole responsibility for planning, coordinating, and overseeing the flow of manuscripts, illustrations, page proof, and indexes through the editorial and production processes.
The State job classification is Temporary, annually renewable. UH Press has 30 employees, the majority of whom are classified as Temporary, some of whom have worked at the Press two or even three decades.
