The International Stroke Journal (IJS) is the flagship journal of the World Stroke Organisation (WSO). It is one of top ranked stroke journals with a rapidly increasing impact; a current impact factor of 6.7, and Citescore of 12.3, placing it in the top 10% of Clinical Neurology journals on both metrics. We are looking for new members to serve on the IJS Editorial Board. Up to eight new members will be added to the board during 2013/4 The IJS is a truly global stroke journal and applications are welcome from any country/region in the world. The selection of new board members will be done by the IJS editorial team. Positions will be for 5 years, with possible renewal for a further 5 year term.
Applicants should be stroke scientists, willing to review up to 10 manuscripts annually, and willing to actively support the promotion and growth of the journal. We particularly welcome individuals who can not only help with reviewing, but can also help with new ideas to increase the wider impact and relevance of the journal. We welcome both candidates who are early career researchers, as well as established researchers. We would expect applicants to have experience in both publishing stroke research, and in reviewing for stroke/neurology journals.
Nominations for the board should be sent by 4 December 2023 to Hugh Markus, Editor in Chief of the IJS on: email@example.com
The application document should be a pdf of MAXIMUM 2 pages. It should include name, contact details, and current position, brief CV (up to 200 words), orchid-ID, Web of Science, Scopus, or Google Scholar metrics, and fields of interest in stroke (up to 5 topics), experience of reviewing, and a statement/motivation section (up to 200 words).
We look forward to your receiving your applications.
