The American Dialect Society has appointed a search committee to recommend a
new Editor of American Speech to assume full responsibilities no later than
January 1, 2016.

American Speech, the quarterly refereed journal of the American Dialect
Society, is published by Duke University Press in Durham, North Carolina.
The Managing Editor, Charles Carson, a full-time member of the editorial
staff of DUP, oversees the day-to-day operations of ADS publications and the
production of both American Speech and PADS. The Editor works with Associate
Editors and members of the Editorial Advisory Board to evaluate and select
submissions for publication in the journal in accordance with the Editorial
Policy stated inside the back cover of the journal. With the Managing
Editor, the Editor prepares accepted articles for publication in matters of
substance, structure, and style. The Editor may also from time to time plan
special issues. In addition, the Editor is responsible for nominating
Associate Editors and members of the Editorial Advisory Board to the
Executive Committee of ADS. The page length and deadlines of the issues of
American Speech are matters of contractual obligation, and the Editor and
Managing Editor must work together to assure that these are met. The work of
the Editor of American Speech can be done at a distance from the DUP offices
via telephone, fax, and email.
