Become an Associate Editor

BMC Medical Genetics is recruiting new Associate Editors to join the Editorial Board. With an increasing visibility of the journal, we wish to increase our Editorial Board to ensure the journal is 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. An Associate Editor for BMC Medical Genetics should be willing to handle a minimum of 10 manuscripts per year across a range of disciplines within their broader subject area.

The contribution to the journal could involve joining an international board of academic Associate Editors to assess manuscripts within your field by guiding them through the peer review process. We would ask you to choose peer reviewers and provide your assessment of the manuscript on the basis of the peer review reports.

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.

Who are we looking for?

For us a suitable Associate Editor for BMC Medical Genetics can be described as someone who:

  • Supports the journal’s scope and direction and is committed advocate and represent BMC Medical Genetics within the scientific community.
  • Is curious and interested in handling manuscripts across a range of topics and enjoys the exposure to a great breadth of interesting research. Associate Editors are assigned to manuscripts within their broad area of experience but not necessarily in their own immediate subspecialty.
