Citizendium welcomes applications for editorship to personnel@citizendium.org. There are three tracks in which experts may apply:

  • The Academic Track
  • The Professional Track
  • The Equivalency Track


Three Tracks to Editorship

Academic Track

Applicants who should apply through the Academic Track include:

  • Persons who hold the qualifications typically needed for a tenure-track academic position in their field.

This is demonstrated by:

  • Sending a brief introductory e-mail with an attached or linked CV and copies of academic transcripts or links to reliable third-party sources that support claims.

Applicants must provide adequate evidence of claims. Official transcripts may be requested.

Professional Track

Applicants who should apply through the Professional Track include:

  • Persons who hold a terminal professional degree in their field and have a record of substantial work and at least some publishing experience.

This is demonstrated by:

  • Sending a brief introductory e-mail with an attached or linked CV or resume that includes links to reliable third-party sources that support claims of work and publishing experience.

Applicants must provide adequate evidence of claims. Official transcripts and other verifications may be requested.

Equivalency Track

Applicants who should apply through the Equivalency Track include:

  • Persons with terminal degrees in fields other than those for which they are claiming expertise.
  • Persons with Masters degrees in fields for which they are claiming expertise.
  • Persons with Masters degrees in fields other than those for which they are claiming expertise.
  • Persons who hold anything less than a Masters degree but who claim eminence in their field.

In the above cases, applicants must demonstrate they have achieved the typically expected expertise outcomes of applicants in the Academic and Professional Tracks through a combination of their unique set of academic, work, and publishing experiences.

Equivalency may be demonstrated by:

  • Sending a brief introductory e-mail with an attached or linked CV or resume and copies of academic transcripts or links to reliable third-party sources that support claims of work and publishing experience.

Applicants must provide adequate evidence of claims. Official transcripts and other verifications may be requested.
