Applications in Plant Sciences REVIEWING EDITOR BOARD
Purpose and Eligibility
The Botanical Society of America is seeking interested applicants to serve on the Reviewing Editor Board for Applications in Plant Sciences, BSA’s open access journal promoting the rapid dissemination of newly developed, innovative tools and protocols in all areas of the plant sciences. The Reviewing Editor Board is composed of a select number of post-doctoral researchers and graduate students who have advanced to Ph.D. candidacy. Reviewing Editors will primarily evaluate Primer Note submissions according to criteria established for the journal and provide feedback to the Associate Editor; they will also assess revised manuscripts for adherence to comments and suggestions. Reviewing editors may also be invited to serve as reviewers for submissions of other article types (Application Articles, Protocol Notes, Review Articles, Software Notes, etc.).
Members of the Reviewing Editor Board will be expected to handle up to two manuscripts per month and to agree to a 2-year commitment, with the term beginning September 1, 2018. Members of this board will be mentored by the APPS Editorial Board members and receive experience in the editorial and peer-review processes. Successful editors will also receive reduced registration rates to the annual conference of the Botanical Society of America.
Applications must include a cover letter from the applicant, CV, and a letter of recommendation from the applicant’s supervisor or major professor. Successful applicants will demonstrate an attention to detail and an interest in gaining experience in this important aspect of academic service; information on scheduled time in the field during the commitment period, if known, should also be provided.
Applications should be sent to email@example.com by May 14, 2018.
