ISCB Seeks Applicatoins for Editors for ISCB Community Journal

ISCB is seeking scholars interested in serving as volunteer editors for the ISCB Community Journal. If you are interested, please submit your nomination using our online system. If you have a colleague who may enjoy serving as a volunteer editor for ISCB, please feel free to forward this information.

The primary responsibility of an editor will be to oversee the content on the ISCB Community Journal homepage. Editors will work with the conferences and have the final decision on the selection of conference editors and editorial board proposed by the conferences. Editors will supervise the conference referee process and ensure the quality standards of referee reports, editorial decision and published papers. Editors will help to promote the journal and to increase the number of conferences publishing in the journal. The ISCB Community Journal editors will work closely with F1000Research to keep improving the journal and make sure it is meeting the aims and objectives of the ISCB. Editors are appointed by the ISCB Board of Directors and will serve a three-year term* with the option to be renewed for one additional term.

Applicants must be a member of ISCB and have significant publishing and reviewing experience, and experience reviewing and working with conference paper and abstract submissions. Due to the high volume of applications, only accepted applicants will be contacted via email.
