BMC Endocrine Disorders scope and ethos
BMC Endocrine Disorders is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and management of endocrine disorders, as well as related molecular genetics, pathophysiology, and epidemiology.
We do not make editorial decisions on the basis of the novelty of a study or its perceived impact. Studies must be scientifically valid and make a contribution to the existing knowledge; for research articles this includes a scientifically sound research question, the use of suitable methods and analysis, appropriate conclusions supported by the data and following community-agreed standards relevant to the research field.
We are interested in individuals who are committed to open access, data sharing and innovation in scientific publishing.
Suitable candidates should:
- have a minimum of fifteen (15) research papers published in reputable, English language, peer-reviewed journals;
- be frequently listed as corresponding author (first or last author) during the last five years;
- have demonstrable expertise that fits within the scope and the need of the journal.
Suitable Editorial Board Members for BMC Endocrine Disorders also must:
- support the journal’s ethos, scope, editorial standards, and policies, and be a committed advocate who will represent BMC Endocrine Disorders within the scientific community.
- provide a professional and supportive service to our authors and ensure that manuscripts they are responsible for fulfil the requirements of the Journal and are handled efficiently and appropriately through peer review.
Role and responsibilities
An 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 recommending decisions on the basis of the peer reviewers’ reports and their own assessment while adhering to the Journal’s editorial policies.
An Editorial Board Member for BMC Endocrine Disorders should be engaged and willing to handle a minimum of twelve (12) manuscripts per year across a range of topics within their broad field of expertise.
We also encourage all of our Editors to take an active interest in journal development and promotional projects to help increase the visibility of our published research.
Our Editorial Board Members will receive training, and our in-house editorial team will also provide administrative support. The Editorial Board Members will report to the Editor.
