About the role
The Editorial Board Role
Being a member of the Editorial Board is an unpaid role, but we do not anticipate it taking up more than a few hours each month. We will always respect times when members are unavailable.
Editorial Board Member Expectations
• Serve a 3-year term (renewable by mutual agreement) on the journal’s Editorial Board.
• Provide at least two reviews a year. If not possible, the member must offer alternative reviewers.
• Assist Editors with assessment of manuscripts prior to peer review and help in adjudication of articles where there are contradictory reviewer recommendations.
• Submit at least two high quality submissions to the journal.
• Encourage the submission of high impact research to the Journal from colleagues and collaborators.
• Provide feedback, insight and recommendation as to how to improve the quality and impact of the journal.
• Participate in an annual Editorial Board meeting at speciality conferences or through organised conference-call meetings.
Declaration of Interests
We ask all board members to provide a declaration of interests and to update this as necessary.
