Associate editors help in copy-editing submissions, contacting prospective peer reviewers, formatting accepted manuscripts, and integrating suitable material into Wikipedia. They can also vote in board elections. If you are interested in joining as an associate editor, you can apply here. All previous applications can be viewed here.

Activities[edit]

Most authors have allowed their article submissions to the Wikijournal to be open-access in the wiki from the very beginning, but in some cases they prefer to have in confidential up to publication. Many journals do not accept submissions that have been in the open at any time, and thereby authors may be harmed by premature disclosure of any or all of an article submission's details. Associate editors must therefore keep such works confidential by restricting discussions about such articles to for example email communications, rather than talk page entries in Wikipedia or Wikiversity. Associate editors must not retain such works for their personal use.

Formal expertise and experience in medicine is useful, but not mandatory. There is no minimum requirement for how active an associate editor is required to be. Yet, it is strongly recommended that you add this page to your watchlist, as well as join the public email list in order to get updates about journal activity. Ways to contribute are detailed at: Editorial guidelines - How to contribute.

Associate editors can edit wiki pages under a pseudonymous username, but need to disclose their identity to the editorial board, and should use their real names when communicating with authors and other editors.

Associate editors may be asked to act as peer review coordinators, aiding in contacting potential peer reviewers when an article is submitted. During this process, peer review coordinators find and invite peer reviewers (see guidelines), and correspond with them as well as the manuscript authors. This does not require any particular expertise in the subject at hand, and it can overlap with other responsibilities. Peer review coordinators need to be aware that it may sometimes take several dozens of invitations before receiving two positive responses.
