Call for Social Media Editor
About the role
The IOM3 Journal Portfolio is seeking a Social Media Editor to create and run ‘IOM3 Journals’ social media channel accounts. These accounts should represent the journals within the IOM3 portfolio. The aim is to promote the journals via regular posts covering newly published articles and journal news. The account should also engage with relevant communities on these platforms, thus increasing the journals’ reach and dissemination.
The successful candidate should have:
• Experience in some/all of the subject areas of the above titles
• Should be able to work effectively with the journals’ Editors, Editorial Boards, and the Taylor & Francis Portfolio Manager, and the IOM3.
• Should also be eloquent and concise in communicating (‘tweeting’) topical, popular, and newly published articles to the public across all the listed journals
• Be able to communicate effectively with other social media accounts such as the @tandfphysci and @iom3 Twitter accounts and other related Taylor & Francis accounts
• Have proven experience of using social media channels in either their professional and/or personal lives
• Be comfortable adapting social media posts to suit different audiences on different social media channels (academic focused for Twitter, industry focused for LinkedIn, etc.)
The successful candidate will be appointed as ‘Social Media Editor’ on the journal’s Editorial Boards, will be provided with guidance and data to support them in their role, and will work with the Editors and Publisher to build awareness of the titles by connecting with the journal communities online. It should be noted that these social media channels do not exist yet and so the social media editor will be required to help with building a following on the relevant social media platforms. They may also be invited to join journal meetings, either virtually, or in person (depending on location). There will be annual compensation for this role. Additionally, as an Editorial Board member, they will also receive online subscriptions to the journals, and a 30% discount for Routledge & CRC Press, Taylor & Francis books.
