The Editorial Team of the Journal of Colorism Studies invites applications for Editorial Review Board members. Working with members of the Editorial Advisory Board, members of the Editorial Review Board will review journal submissions and ensure that the journal responds timely to submissions.
The Editorial Review Board will consist of members willing to commit to reviewing articles two times each year. Successful candidates will become members of the board beginning in 2015 for three years. Editorial Review Board members are responsible for reviewing submissions for accuracy, clarity, and research rigor; identifying the strengths and weaknesses of submissions; providing detailed comments on reviewed submissions, and providing recommendations for accepting or rejecting manuscripts for publication. Note: Members will perform functions virtually.
We are also interested in applications from Guest Reviewers to review submissions for our special issue Celebrating, Embracing and Empowering Girls and Women of Color, scheduled for publication in 2015.
Being a member of the Editorial Review Board means being professionally associated with the Journal of Colorism Studies. The names of members will be included in each issue, listed on the journal’s web page, and included on the website of the Intraracial Colorism Project, Inc.
Composition of the Editorial Review Board will include a wide variety of members representing the community, including organizational leaders, change agents, and educators from all sectors including scholars consisting of early career through senior academics. Members should possess a master’s and/or doctorate in topics published by the journal and have equivalent experience in a relevant subject. We invite and encourage graduate students to submit applications.

The Intraracial Colorism Project, Inc.’s recommend reading for the week is an article titled Racism written by Dr. Selena T. Rodgers, LCSW-R, an assistant professor of Social Work at the City University of New York, York College and a Fulbright Specialist designation from the United States Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
“The article gives a historical sketch of racism, followed by examples of its contemporary indicators—throughout social institutions—in the United States.” (Rodgers, 2015).
In light of the plethora of social ills involving racism as a constant, the article is timely, enlightening, and much-needed. According to Dr. Rodgers (2015), “racism is pervasive, endemic, and historically rooted in systematic assumptions inherent in superiority based on race and requires the critical attention of all social workers.”
To read the article, please visit the Encyclopedia of Social Work .
