With an increasing visibility of the portfolio, we wish to expand our Editorial Boards to ensure the journals are able to cope with an increasing number of submissions whilst maintaining high editorial standards.
We are interested in individuals who are committed to open access, data sharing and innovation in scientific publishing.
Our Editorial Board Members should have a minimum of fifteen to twenty (15-20) research papers published in reputable, English language, peer-review journals.
They should be frequently listed as corresponding author (first or last author) during the last five years.
Suitable Editorial Board Members for BMC Series journals must:
- Support the journal's ethos, scope, editorial standards, and policies, and be committed to represent the journals within the scientific community.
- Provide a professional and supportive service to our authors and ensure that manuscripts fulfil the requirements of the journal and are handled efficiently and appropriately through peer-review.
Role and responsibilities
The Editorial Board Member is primarily responsible for assessing manuscripts for their suitability for peer review, selecting suitable reviewers who meet the journal’s requirements and recommends decisions on the basis of the peer reviewers’ reports and their own assessment while adhering to the journal’s editorial policies.
An Editorial Board Member for a BMC Series journal should be willing to handle a minimum of 12 manuscripts per year across a range of disciplines within their broader subject area.
We also encourage all of our Editors to take an active interest in journal development and promotional projects to help increase the visibility of our published research.
