The Journal of Open Research Software is seeking candidates to serve as additional Associate Editors, due to the increase in the volume of submissions to the journal.
The Journal of Open Research Software is an international, open-access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes Software Metapapers describing research software with high reuse potential as well as research papers on Issues in Research Software that cover different aspects of creating, maintaining and evaluating open source research software.
Candidates for Associate Editors should be actively working in an area where research software is used, however we do not require candidates to have a PhD or be based within a university.
Ideal candidates will have had experience in writing and reviewing research software papers. They should also be aware of the leading users and developers of research software in their field, as this will aid their ability to manage the review process. We are particularly interested in candidates who can demonstrate that they have read or written a number of high quality research software papers, and gained a broad experience of the qualities that make a software (or data) paper useful.
Associate Editors should be able to devote the time and energy necessary to ensure that published articles are of the highest quality and provide useful information to the journal’s readers, and work with the Editor-in-Chief and their fellow Associate Editors to act as advocates for the journal.
