International Urogynecology Journal Editor Positions
The International Urogynecology Journal is the official journal of the International Urogynecological Association (IUGA) and is currently accepting applications for two Editor positions. These editors will join a current team of two Editors-in-Chief and six Editors and will be responsible for managing peer review of journal submissions and making editorial decisions, using the Editorial Manager online submission platform.
Preference will be given to candidates who meet the following criteria:
- Prior experience with the peer review process, research, and publications.
- A strong academic and clinical background.
- International academic connections and ability to add to the geographic diversity of the journal.
- Ability to work effectively with the Editors-in-Chief, Editorial Board Members, Reviewers, and Authors.
- Prior editorial experience.
We encourage both self-nominations and recommendations for this position. Each editor will be offered a fixed term of 6 years (renewable for no more than one term) and will receive complimentary registration and travel support to the IUGA Annual Meeting. Editors are expected to attend an annual Editors’ Meeting at the IUGA Annual Meeting and a biennial publisher’s meeting in New York City in person, and to participate in quarterly editor teleconferences.
Interested candidates should provide their CV, a cover letter explaining their interest in the position addressing the criteria listed for the position, and names of one to two references. Applicants must disclose all conflicts of interests in their cover letter. Individuals with leadership positions in other journals or societies may be asked to step down from those positions to resolve any COI. Please send these materials to the IUJ Managing Editor, Ms. Lindsay MacMurray (firstname.lastname@example.org), by Friday, March 24, 2017.
