AAEA is particularly interested in candidates who will bring ideas and innovations for helping AEPP to further its mission. Information about AEPP, its policies and mission is available at

Managing Editor Responsibilities

The editors also oversee the work of Oxford University Press in preparing copy for printing and reviewing proofs.
