Contract type
Voluntary role
Closing date
22 May 2023

IOM3 has a portfolio of 17 scholarly journals we produce with our publishing partner. To nurture our relationship with our publisher, authors and readers, IOM3 is seeking to recruit 6-8 committee members for its new Scholarly Publications Committee (SPC). Meeting about four times a year, the SPC will provide strategic, non-executive direction for its scholarly publications programme from authors, editors and users of scholarly journals.

We are seeking members from any IOM3 technical background with experience in:

  • Publishing scholarly research;
  • Producing scholarly research for publication;
  • Editing scholarly publications; or
  • Using such publications for their work.

We want to ensure that there is a balance in the committee which we expect will have members who might be employed in companies, research organisations or academia.

Please submit a CV and a statement of interest, including what you plan to do to support members and to improve equality, diversity, and inclusion in this role, to Anita Horton [email protected] by 08:00 on 22 May 2023.

Please also contact Anita if you would like to arrange an informal discussion about these volunteer roles.

Don’t meet every requirement? Studies have shown that women and people of colour are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At IOM3 we are building a diverse and inclusive Institute. If you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the role description, we encourage you to apply anyway. You may just be the right candidate for this or other roles.
