Joining our Editorial Boards

In line with the Microbiology Society’s value of transparency and our strategy, we are dedicated to providing opportunities for our members to engage in all Society activities. As such, all vacant positions on our Editorial Boards are open to expressions of interest from the membership.

Numbers on each Editorial Board vary but normally consist of an Editor-in-Chief and Deputy Editor-in-Chief, which are appointed by Council, along with a series of Editors who are elected by the Editorial Board. Members of the Editorial Boards serve 3–6 years per role and meet at least once a year to discuss the development and strategic direction of the journal. For each journal, the Editor-in-Chief or Deputy Editor-in-Chief also sit on the Publishing Committee.
