I have a strong interest in science writing and have served in multiple roles for the Journal of Postdoctoral Research. I started as a Contributing Editor and was quickly promoted to Editor in Chief. Upon leaving my postdoctoral position, I transition to the journal's advisory board. In my time in the leadership of the journal, I have helped oversee fundamental changes that have broadened the impact of the journal. Those efforts include:
promoting the journal to postdocs worldwide
introduction of our postdoc of the month and year awards
creation of Postdoc Proceedings (a mechanism for postdocs or conferences to publish abstracts and data that can be referenced in future publications)
seeking collaboration with established publishers
the beginnings of monetizing our resources
and coordinating an overhaul of the editor system by increasing communication and instituting submission schedules, thereby creating a more predictable and consistent in-flow of submissions.
