The Journal of the Colleges of Medicine South Africa (JCMSA) is seeking applications for the position of Deputy Editor to join the JCMSA editorial team. The Deputy Editor, together with the editor-in-chief (EIC), will lead the JCMSA’s strategy, manuscript management, and new initiatives; promote and advance the journal; and steer the new author-assist program.

JCMSA is the official journal of the Colleges of Medicine of South Africa and seeks to publish high-quality, peer-reviewed manuscripts relevant to all areas of specialist medicine and dentistry. The journal publishes a wide variety of article types, including original research articles, systematic reviews, and case series.

The Deputy Editor will be expected to stay abreast of developments and innovations in scholarly publishing and will assist the EIC in ensuring that JCMSA’s measured impact in the field is high. This includes making manuscript decisions. The Deputy Editor, together with the EIC, will set and guide the editorial tone, such that the editorial team, authors, and reviewers meet the highest level of editorial excellence and ethical standards. The Deputy Editor will also co-chair meetings with the editorial board and editorial team, recruit high quality/high impact authors and reviewers, and act as an ambassador for JCMSA.

Interested candidates should have a medical or dental specialist degree, be a member of CMSA, have a good track record of publications in the field, and possess effective written and oral communication skills. The ideal candidate will have prior journal experience as an associate, assistant, section, or chief editor.

The Deputy Editor role is an initial two-year commitment, with the option of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and approval by the Journal Oversight Committee.

To apply, submit a current CV and cover letter with a brief statement of interest outlining experience with manuscript management, editing, and/or strategic leadership, as applicable, to Herlien van Rooyen ([email protected]).
