Editor-in-Chief, Bone & Joint Research

The British Editorial Society of Bone & Joint Surgery is seeking to appoint a new Editor-in-Chief for its open access journal, Bone & Joint Research (BJR). BJR has been well established over the last 13 years; it is included in PubMed Central, PubMed, Directory of Open Access Journals, Web of Science and has an Impact Factor of 4.6.

BJR publishes papers across the whole field of musculoskeletal science, from basic science studies to clinical research. All papers are published under the gold open access model, with an Author Publication Charge (APC) payable by the authors or relevant funding body.

We now seek a new Editor-in-Chief to build on the success of BJR to date, and to keep BJR at the forefront of open access publications in orthopaedics. The successful candidate will be an orthopaedic surgeon or musculoskeletal scientist with an active research programme, with previous editorial experience on the boards of other journals, and as a reviewer. The Editor is supported by a strong professional in-house publishing team, and it is expected that his/her duties will occupy about 7 hours per week initially, which is likely to increase with the growth of the journal. An honorarium is payable for this position.

A full job description is available here.

Deadline for applications: Friday 5 July 2024. Interviews will be held on Wednesday 24 July 2024.

To apply, please send a covering letter and CV to: Richard Hollingsworth, Managing Director, British Editorial Society of Bone & Joint Surgery, 22 Buckingham Street, London WC2N 6ET. Email: r.hollingsworth@boneandjoint.org.uk
