The SVS Publications Committee invites applicants for the position of editor of the Journal of Vascular Surgery and the Journal of Vascular Surgery – Venous and Lymphatic Disorders. Editors’ terms are three years and are renewable. While there is no limit on the number of terms that editors may serve, SVS does a request for applicants at least every six years to allow those interested in this exciting opportunity to serve the organization.
The criteria for selection include an established reputation in clinical vascular surgery and clinical or basic research, a reputation for fairness, evidence of scholarly activity in an editorial role, and demonstrated management skills. Individuals must be active or senior members of the Society for Vascular Surgery.
Editors typically devote approximately 20 hours per week to their positions and rely on significant input from the associate editors.
Applications should be accompanied by current curriculum vitae, a summary of the candidate’s editorial experience, other experience that would reflect on the position and an outline of plans for both continuing and changing the present management and orientation of the two journals.
If submitting an editorial team, please designate which person shall serve as the Editor-in-Chief.
Applications should be submitted electronically by April 30 to the chair of SVS Publications Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Publications Committee expects to present finalists to the SVS Board of Directors for consideration in mid-2014 so that an orderly transition can occur during the second half of 2014.
