We are seeking an enthusiastic, well-organised individual with strong English language skills, excellent communication skills (written and verbal) and a good eye for detail to join the team as an Editorial Assistant on F1000Research and across our open research platforms (openresearchcentral.org), including our publishing platforms for Wellcome and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
F1000 Research is an innovative open research publisher of scientific, scholarly, translational and clinical research across the physical and life sciences, engineering, medicine, social sciences and humanities. The F1000 Research publishing system combines the ability to rapidly publish scholarly articles with the functionality to ensure transparency, robustness and reproducibility of research. The publishing model combines the benefits of ‘pre-printing’ (providing rapid publication) with quality and transparency (open data and open peer review) and enables publication within days of submission, followed by open invited peer review.
The role will involve a wide range of tasks relating to facilitating the peer review process for our research platforms, including contacting internationally renowned academic researchers and clinicians, assessing the appropriateness of peer reviewers and providing additional suggestions, and some basic editing and quality checks of peer review reports.
The successful candidate will have a background in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) with a natural ability to communicate concepts clearly and enthusiastically, work efficiently, and have excellent attention to detail. They will also need to be a strong team player who enjoys interacting with people and be fully computer literate.
Prior editorial experience is not required for this role as full training will be provided.
