Two Washington University School of Medicine physician-scientists have been chosen to join the JASN Editorial Fellows mentorship program for 2021-2023.
Andrew Malone, MBBCh, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Nephrology, and Parker Wilson, MD, PhD, Instructor, Pathology & Immunology, will join nine other fellows in the program, which will introduce them to editorial processes involved in publishing peer-reviewed papers.
The program, now in its third year, matches early career scientists, junior faculty or senior trainees one-on-one with a JASN’s Associate or Deputy Editor mentors.
The Editorial Fellows participate in all JASN editorial processes, including review of manuscripts and the development of policy. Fellows and their mentors work together to read assigned manuscripts, select reviewers, and assess the content and quality of the reviews. After reviews are discussed with the Editor, a final recommendation on the manuscript is made.
While the mentorship program provides invaluable experience for the fellows, the scientific publishing community also benefits from having a continuous influx of diverse, contemporary expertise in the field of nephrology.
“The JASN Editorial Fellowship is a great opportunity to be part of the complete scientific review process. I look forward to doing my part to maintain the highest publishing standards at JASN,” says Malone. Wilson concurs, “It’s a great privilege to have the opportunity to work with JASN. I’m looking forward to an exciting and educational editorial fellowship.”
