Typically editorial board members for medical journals are chosen from the population of excellent reviewers. No exception for Virginia Wang, PhD who recently accepted an invitation to be on the editorial board of BMC Nephrology as Associate Editor of the Epidemiology and Outcomes Section.
Editorial work is hard – reviewing manuscripts, advising on journal policy and scope, identifying topics for special issues, even performing as a guest editor, plus attracting new authors and submissions. Though not financially rewarding, one gains visibility and a significant increase in knowledge in the related field. Dr. Wang, no doubt, will be an ambassador for the journal and add her academic credentials to it’s editorial board.
BMC Nephrology is “an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed research articles in all aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and management of kidney and associated disorders, as well as related molecular genetics, pathophysiology, and epidemiology.”
Congratulations, Dr. Wang!
