I’ve been volunteering for EBLIP (Evidence Based Library and Information Practice) for several years, first as an evidence summary writer and over the past two years as an editor for evidence summaries.
My co-editor is finishing her three-year term this summer, and we’re looking for a new co-editor. If you know of anyone who would be interested, please send them our way (deadline April 30):
The position does involve quite some work twice a year (the co-editor and I are each responsible for two issues per year), I have to admit, but it is very good training for those interested in these kinds of editorial roles, and the all-volunteer editorial team is quite inspiring.
Because evidence summaries are short review articles, the editorial work is not as difficult as research articles, so it’s a good „entry point“ for people interested in moving up to being a research article editor.
Just in case you know someone who might be interested!
