An open call to join the CMI editorial team: editor in virology

Leonard Leibovici
CMI Editorial Office
Contact: leibovici@post.tau.ac.il

Clinical Microbiology and Infection (CMI) is looking for an editor in virology to join our editorial team. We are looking for a person with a track record in laboratory research, or leading a clinical microbiology laboratory on viral diseases. We expect this editor to deal with submissions dealing with diagnostics, and submissions in which the laboratory aspect is the important one.

What should you expect if you would join us as an editor? CMI editors participate in making decisions on the journals’ policies, and describe these policies for the benefit of the readers (see for example references [1-6]). They attend meetings of the editorial team 1-2 times per year. Editors are assigned about four papers per month. They invite suitable peer-reviewers to write peer-reviews, judge the merits of the manuscript according to the reviews and make a decision whether to decline publication or ask for a revision. For papers with a high chance of publication, the editor will continue working with the author to improve the presentation of the results. Editors solicit reviews and commentaries. They plan theme issues on topics that matter to our readers, invite authors to write them, and help shape the theme issue into a coherent description of the topic. We estimate the work needed as 2-4 hours per week.

Editorial work at CMI is voluntary and editors are not compensated for their time. The appointment is for four years, and can be extended for another term. CMI is the official publication of the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases. It has an impact factor of 14.2. Our aims at CMI have been published [7]: please read them before you apply to us.

Why should you join us as an editor? The only working model (as of now) that brings research results to the people who are interested and can use them is through scientific journals. Improving the methods of the study and the reporting of results is a worthy goal, and you can contribute by being an editor. We think the aims of ESCMID [8] and CMI [7] are worthwhile. To put forward your candidacy, please write to the Manager of CMI Office, Julia Friedman: jlubom2@gmail.com. Please send us your CV and list of publications; a one-page text summary of your research and clinical career, including future prospects; a one-page summary of your editorial experience and experience as a peer-reviewer; one page including three ideas of how to improve CMI; and two letters of recommendation focusing on your skills as a peer-reviewer and editor. Please write to us before May the 1st, 2024. We will make our decision by July the 1st, 2024. Please do not hesitate to write to us with any questions you might have.

Editorial Note: not peer-reviewed.

  4. Hey Guys,

    Warning: From February 2024, all existing email autoresponders will become obsolete!

    In fact, if you want to send marketing emails, promotional emails, or any other sort of emails starting in February 2024, you’ll need to comply with Gmail’s and Yahoo’s draconic new directives.

    They require regular marketers like you and I to setup complex code on sending domains… and existing autoresponders like Aweber and GetResponse are not helping: they’re requesting you do all the work, and their training is filled with complex instructions and flowcharts…

    How would you like to send unlimited emails at the push of a button all with done-for-you DMARC, DKIM, SPF, custom IPs and dedicated SMTP sending servers?

    What I mean by all of that tech talk above, is that with ProfitMarc, we give you pre-set, pre-configured, DONE-FOR-YOU email sending addresses you can just load up and mail straight away.

    We don’t even have any “setup tutorials” like other autoresponders either, because guess what: we already did all the setup for you!

    All of our built-in sending addresses and servers are already pre-warmed with Gmail and Yahoo and they’re loving us: 99% inbox rate is the average!

  10. Thanks for sharing the article, and more importantly, your personal experience! Mindfully using our emotions as data about our inner state and knowing when it’s better to de-escalate by taking a time out are great tools. Appreciate you reading and sharing your story, since I can certainly relate and I think others can too.
