JMIR Publications is an open access academic publisher based in Toronto, Canada, and is the leading publisher of peer-reviewed journals in the ehealth domain. Our mission is to reinvent research communication through grassroots, researcher-driven innovation in every aspect of peer-reviewed publishing, making use of Internet, social media, and mobile technologies, and we are currently expanding into other science domains.
To expand our journal portfolio we are looking for visionary and highly regarded scientists, primarily working at the intersections between technology and medicine, to lead the creation and development of new journals in emerging disciplines and rapidly expanding research areas (e.g. JMIR mHealth, JMIR Serious Games, JMIR Bioinformatics, JMIR Biomedical Engineering etc.).
We are also looking for new editor-in-chiefs for existing journals: i-JMR and JMIR Research Protocols, and JMIR.
Editors-in-chief must be highly regarded and cited individuals (evidenced by their list of publications and their h-index, generally at least 15-20) and must have a clear vision for their journal, including a plan to solicit editorial board members and the first 20 submissions.
