A fantastic new role has come up in the Journals division of a leading academic publisher! If you have experience of Open Access publishing and are passionate about scientific research, this could be the perfect next role for you!

Joining them at the Managing Editor level, you will be responsible for:

  • Developing a range of OA science journals and commissioning new articles across medical and biomedical disciplines

  • Managing the relationship with external and internal stakeholders to ensure journals are published on time and to agreed quality standards
