Add “Guest Editor” to your CV!

Interested in adding Guest Editor to your CV?  Volunteer to take the lead on a special issue of JLB!  Your role as lead Guest Editor would include identifying 2-3 co-Editors to work with you in…

1)       Defining the scope of your topic/theme

2)       Suggesting potential contributing authors for research papers and reviews

3)       Acting as the handling editor to oversee the peer review process.

If you have a topic in mind, begin by perusing recent JLB special issues to see the range of topics and articles represented, then submit the following information:

  • Your name, institution, and contact information
  • Proposed topic or theme
  • A brief paragraph (approx. 250 words) outlining your ideas and including 2-3 possible article topics and authors (please do not contact any possible authors at this point!)
Submit Your Idea

Submissions will be accepted society members and responded to on a rolling basis.  For topics of greatest interest, we will schedule a virtual meeting to provide a more detailed outline of the special issue process and support mechanisms, answer your questions, and discuss possible next steps.  This is a great opportunity for junior faculty and mentoring will be provided.
