Journal Description

JMIR Bioinformatics and Biotechnology (JBB) is a forthcoming journal from JMIR Publications, the leading publisher for technology in health and medicine. JBB is a new sister journal of JMIR, the leading journal in medicine, ehealth and health services research in the Internet age (Impact Factor 2015: 4.5). 

The Journal will launch in 2016 and is now open for submissions (no publication or submission fees for the inaugural issues).

We are currently seeking academic leaders in this field to apply as acquistion editors (paid), or section editors for Editorial Board positions. Among the EB, we will select an editor-in-chief. There will be remuneration in form of a credit system, rewarding actions such as taking on papers as submission editor.

Prequisites include a scholarly track-record, demonstrated by being a first author on peer-reviewed publications and having served as peer-reviewer (preferably this should include JMIR journals. Applicants can self-assign themselves to papers to be peer-reviewed at JMIR Preprints). Please include a list of publications as well as journals you reviewed for.

To apply, please contact (Subject: JBB Editorial Board Self-Nomination) and include a brief description of your expertise and interests.
