College EOI: 'Paramedicine' Associate Editor

Paramedicine, the international peer-reviewed journal of the Australasian College of Paramedicine, is seeking expressions of interest (EOIs) from suitably qualified individuals for the role of Associate Editor.

Previously the Australasian Journal of Paramedicine, Paramedicine will launch in September 2022 led by the Editor-in Chief, Associate Professor Paul Simpson and an international team of Deputy Editors consisting of Professor Julia Williams (UK), Associate Professor Walter Taveres (Can), Dr Alan Batt (Can) and Dr Kathryn Eastwood (Aus).

The Associate Editor functions at a sub-editorial level within the Associate Editorial Panel. Associate Editors support the editorial leadership team to achieve Paramedicine’s vision and mission, and meet strategic objectives.

The functions of the Associate Editor include:

  • Support the Editor-in Chief and Deputy Editors in implementing the journal’s vision and mission
  • Promote the journal within professional networks
  • Provide specialist advice specific to areas of discipline, clinical and/or research expertise
  • Engage in consultation on journal strategy and development
  • Contribute to quality improvement initiatives
  • Perform high quality peer-review
  • Provide mentorship to the journal’s peer reviewers

An Associate Editor would be expected to:

  • Perform five (5) high quality peer reviews for the journal per year
  • Complete a recognised peer review training course (or provide evidence of having done so previously within the past 2 years)
  • Complete Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) continuing professional development (CPD) modules
  • Respond in a timely manner to requests for engagement from the Editorial Team

An applicant would ideally possess:

  • A PhD (or demonstrable equivalence) and/or specialist knowledge of the paramedicine industry
  • Substantial experience in the discipline of paramedicine as a clinician, educator, academic, manager, researcher or leader.
  • Demonstrable experience in peer review
  • A demonstrable track record of research and/or quality improvement activity

Appointment to an Associate Editor role would be for an initial period of two (2) years, with the possibility of extension pending performance, engagement, and compatibility with Paramedicine’s philosophy and ethos. There is no remuneration for the role. The anticipated time commitment is variable, but estimated to be approximately 5-10 hours per month on an ad-hoc basis.

EOIs should be sent to the Editor-In-Chief Associate Professor Paul Simpson at editor.paramedicine@paramedics.org

**The EOI must include: **

  1. a cover letter outlining the applicant’s claim to the role; and
