How can I apply to become an editorial board member?

We are currently looking to expand our Editorial Board. To apply to be an Editorial Board Member/Associate Editor, please apply using the form linked in this article. You should hold a PhD (or similar higher degree), have a publication track record (h-index>8), and ideally have some academic editing experience. 

Guest Editors

We are also seeking guest editors who may wish to compile a theme issue on a special subtopic. Click here for more information on how to suggest a theme issue.

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.

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;
  • Write an editorial for the theme issue; and/or
  • Secure funding to sponsor the APFs for published papers (usually in the $10-20k range).

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