Regular readers of the BMC-series blog and followers of BMC Surgery will know that the journal recently underwent an editorial restructuring which we believe will allow us to better reflect the latest research that is happening in the field. For those that missed the news this blog, posted at the time of the restructure, will bring you up to speed.
As a part of this restructuring we introduced a Case Reports section to the journal, and we now have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and motivated surgeon or surgical researcher to join our board as Section Editor of this section.
Published case reports offer an important service to medical research, providing a reference for unusual conditions. They are of even more use to the surgical field, where important and unforeseen complications can arise during surgery, and details of the management of these situations can assist other surgeons in future operations.
Do you share our enthusiasm for the utility of case reports? Are you interested in open access publishing, and in joining the editorial board of a leading open access Surgery journal, or do you know someone that is? If so then our Executive Editor Tom Rowles would be very interested in hearing from you. When contacting, please provide a CV and a short paragraph detailing why you are interested in the role.
