Are you interested in learning more about peer review and Open Access journals? One of our top academic publishing clients is looking to hire an Editorial Assistant to support the Journals team and looking after their online peer review system.

In this role, you will be responsible for:

  • Providing editorial support to the journals publishing team, to help with the submission of articles through online peer review systems
  • Checking peer-review quality, working closely with a Peer Review Manager
  • Maintaining accurate records on the internal database
  • Answering queries from authors and other contributors
  • Helping assess plagiarism cases via online detection technology
