The American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI) seeks an Editor in Chief to lead JCI Insight. The journal was launched in 2016 to support the ASCI’s mission of publishing impactful biomedical research, along with the Journal of Clinical Investigation (JCI).
JCI Insight is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the publication of research in all biomedical specialties, ranging from preclinical to clinical studies. While JCI Insight is complementary to the JCI, and both journals are governed by ASCI policies, the Editors and their boards are independent. JCI Insight draws submissions directly and considers submissions previously evaluated by the JCI and other journals. The journal, which the ASCI self-publishes along with the JCI, is online only and freely available to all readers and is supported by publication fees.
The Editor is responsible for: determining the scientific content of JCI Insight; ensuring the quality and integrity of publications; assembling and leading an editorial board to handle research submissions; and meeting goals set by the ASCI Council and Publications Committee. The selected candidate will have responsibilities that include service on the Council. The term of office is 5 years and begins September 2019.
To be considered for the position of Editor, a candidate must be a member of the ASCI and demonstrate a strong scientific track record.
