We welcome applications from researchers with expertise in data-focused research, including genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic data, computational biology and bioinformatics. We also encourage applications from researchers who have an interest in promoting open science through the sharing of genomic and genetic data.

We are interested in individuals who are committed to open access, data sharing and innovation in scientific publishing.

Our Editorial Board Members should have a minimum of twenty (20) research papers published in reputable, English language, peer-review journals.

They should be frequently listed as corresponding author (first or last author) during the last five years.

Suitable Editorial Board Members for BMC Genomic Data must:

  • Support the journal’s ethos, scope, editorial standards, and policies, and be committed to represent BMC Genomic Data within the scientific community.
  • Provide a professional and supportive service to our authors and ensure that manuscripts fulfil the requirements of the Journal and are handled efficiently and appropriately through peer-review.

Role and responsibilities

The Editorial Board Member is primarily responsible for assessing manuscripts for their suitability for peer review, selecting suitable reviewers who meet the Journal’s requirements and recommends decisions on the basis of the peer reviewers’ reports and their own assessment while adhering to the Journal’s editorial policies.

Announcement

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
