ISCB in partnership with Oxford University Press to launch new open access journal, Editor in Chief Search Begins

The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) in partnership with Oxford University Press (OUP) has entered into an agreement to launch a new open access journal - provisionally titled Bioinformatic Advances.

ISCB invites applications for the position of Editor-in-Chief.

The journal will be a broad-scope, open-access journal dealing with multiple aspects of computational biology, particularly methodological papers focused on systematic validation of simulated or real biological data, and theoretical analyses of such data. The Editorial team will consist of ISCB appointments led by an experienced Editor-in-Chief and supported by a further team of Associate Editors and a scientific advisory board.

Candidates should have a strong record of recognized scholarship, a broad base of knowledge in the field, demonstrated leadership and communication skills, and appropriate time to devote to the journal. Understanding of publishing ethics and familiarity with an open access journal model is essential. Previous editorial experience and the ability to clearly articulate a compelling vision for the journal are other key factors on which candidates will be evaluated.
