BSP journals are peer-reviewed Open Access GOLD Journals in the field of Science, Technology and Medicine. Each issue of the journal presents a diversified, though yet coherent range of articles from various areas within the field. Due to the grow of our journals and annual selection of editorial board members, we have exciting opportunities for editors at our editorial boards.
Potential candidates should have a PhD degree, several years hands-on experience and a broad interest and demonstrable expertise in the general chemistry field is a must. The candidate should be willing to work in a multidisciplinary environment with other editorial board colleagues. Proficiency in the English language is a must and experience with editorial workflows is a pre but not a must.
Editorial board positions are on a voluntary basis and are not eligible to any financial compensations.
