Journal journeys: Day 1, Swamped!

Like Comment

This will be brief, but it’s Day 1, and I couldn’t let it pass without a quick post…

The deadline for applications for the associate editor positions has now passed – and there’s an awful lot of paper strewn around my desk… and the floor around it… now, time to shortlist and get the right mix of expertise in the right locations.

Here’s a challenge for you – imagine you’re setting up a general chemistry journal and you have a total editorial team of four – how do you break down the areas of expertise? Along traditional lines, or something different? Anyway – now I have a data set to work with, I’ll be trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together…
