Join our Editorial Board

We are expanding our Associate Editor team

BMC Bioinformatics is currently recruiting new Associate Editors to join our international Editorial Board.

We encourage applications from researchers with a bioinformatics background in a range of subject areas, broadly covered by the below:

BMC Bioinformatics scope and ethos

BMC Bioinformatics is an open access, peer-reviewed journal  that considers articles on all aspects of the development, testing and novel application of computational and statistical methods for the modeling and analysis of all kinds of biological data, as well as other areas of computational biology.

We do not make editorial decisions on the basis of the interest of a study or its likely impact. Studies must be scientifically valid; for research articles this includes a scientifically sound research question, the use of suitable methods and analysis, and following community-agreed standards relevant to the research field.

 

BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.

 

Criteria

We are interested in individuals who are committed to open access, data sharing and innovation in scientific publishing.

Our Associate Editors should have a minimum of 15 research papers published in reputable peer-review journals.

A suitable Associate Editor for BMC Bioinformatics is as someone who:

  • Supports the journal’s ethos, scope, editorial standards, and policies, and is a committed advocate who will represent BMC Bioinformatics within the scientific community.
  • Provides a professional and supportive service to our authors and ensures that manuscripts they are responsible for fulfill the requirements of the Journal and are handled efficiently and appropriately through peer review. 

Role and responsibilities

The Associate Editor is primarily responsible for assessing manuscripts for their suitability for peer review, selecting suitable reviewers who meet the Journal’s requirements and recommending decisions on the basis of the peer reviewers’ reports and their own assessment while adhering to the Journal’s editorial policies.  

 An Associate Editor for BMC Bioinformatics should be engaged and willing to handle a minimum of two manuscripts per month within their field of expertise.

Our Associate Editors will receive training, and our in-house editorial team will also provide administrative support. The Associate Editor will report to the Editor and Section Editor.
