Fascinating opportunity for people interested in print and online publishing
The LI is looking for a number of people to join its editorial advisory panel. The panel offers advice and guidance to the editor and publishers of two important LI communications, the quarterly journal and the fortnightly news update service.
The aims of the journal are to:
*promote knowledge of landscape architecture, management, and planning policy and practice together with the research which underpins it;
*enable communication of advances in policy and practice between landscape architects in the UK and internationally;
*provide a permanent medium of record of issues relating to landscape architecture;
*reflect and react to the changing face of the landscape profession;
*and, demonstrate the role that the LI is playing in the national conversation on these matters.
The aims of LI news and events are to provide:
*regular news updates on political and industry-relevant matters;
*updates on LI-related matters of interest;
*updates on what is happening to practices and people;
*updates on projects by tracking them from conception to design, planning and build;
*updates from the CEO; and a listing of LI and industry-related events.
The editorial advisory panel helps to source articles for the journal and LI news and events from colleagues and other contributors; advises and supports the editor to achieve the highest quality content; suggest subjects to be covered; assists with peer review or finding appropriate reviewers; and promotes the journal and LI news and events widely amongst landscape and other disciplines.
The LI is particularly keen to recruit members in the following categories: student (with links to SLIC); licentiate; and landscape architect in a small registered practice. It is also keen to cover the areas of landscape design, landscape management, urban design, landscape planning and landscape research.
It is keen to recruit people with a strong interest interest in online and print publishing; with great ideas for the development of these key communications; and with excellent contacts. It also wants to recruit members with expertise in a range of technical areas like specifying; horticulture and software applications.
