FAQ Article How to become an EB member

We are currently looking to expand our editorial board. To apply as subject editor, please go to the application form mentioned in the FAQ article. You should hold a PhD or similar higher degree and have a publication track record (h-index>8) and ideally academic editing experience. We pay by "karma credits" (worth up to $70 per paper guided through peer-review, as well as additional honoraria for acquisition editors).

The editorial board is currently being reorganized, with the new EB members taking on a more active role in screening submissions, assigning peer-reviewers, and guiding manuscripts through the peer-review process. If you are interested in serving on the editorial board, please read the notes above. 

Guest editors

We are also seeking guest editors who may wish to compile a theme issue on a special subtopic (for example: electronic publishing, telemedicine, quality of health information, patient education, decision-support, Internet in psychiatry).

This may be particularly interesting for workshop and conference organizers putting together a grant-funded event (eg, with invited experts) on an eHealth-related topic. JMIR can then be used as a dissemination vehicle. (Funding through grants or other sources is usually required and should be bidgeted for in grant proposals. Letters of support are available from the JMIR editor. Note that granting agencies such as NLM or CIHR usually want to see some sort of knowledge translation activities in workshop proposals, and have in the past funded the JMIR APFs.)

The task of the guest editor(s) is generally to:

• solicit manuscripts from colleagues concerning the selected topic,

• select peer-reviewers for incoming manuscripts,

• make decisions (together with the editorial board) on article revisions and acceptance, and

• write an editorial for the theme issue

• secure funding to sponsor the APFs for published papers (usually in the $10-20k range).

Alternately, the abstracts of the conference may published in a supplement, with selected full papers published later in a theme issue or in regular JMIR issues.
