Evidence Based Nursing: Associate Editor Vacancy

Evidence-Based Nursing is looking to appoint a new associate editor with expertise in Intellectual Disabilities nursing or research to join our team. Evidence Based Nursing serves to provide nurses, midwives and other healthcare practitioners with insights into the latest clinical and professional research. The journal commissions and publishes commentaries on recent literature, providing analysis and critique of methods, findings, and implication for practice and research. In addition, the journal stimulates discussion and supports learning through publication of editorials, and evidence-based summaries of nursing-related research and nurse education. Further information about the journal can be found on the Evidence-Based Nursing website. For this role, we would particularly welcome applications from RNs with a doctorate who have:
  • An interest in promoting evidence-based nursing, and
  • Expertise in Intellectual Disabilities care and/or research
Applications are welcomed from Registered Nurses (RNs) from around the world.  We would particularly like to encourage applications from outside of the United Kingdom to expand the international scope of and expertise within our editorial team. EBN seeks to ensure our editorial team is as diverse as possible and so we encourage applications from eligible candidates from underrepresented groups. Applicants should have a doctorate and some research expertise, with a track record in publishing in a range of academic and professional journals. Applicants should also have an active presence on social media. Associate editors are expected to:
  1. Identify at least four published articles per month (from database searches and other sources) that may be suitable for commissioned commentaries.
  2. Review and make editorial recommendations regarding commentaries that are submitted for publication.

  4. Write and/or commission Evidence-Based Nursing blogs (approximately 4 per year)
  5. Write and submit content for the journal, two or three times per year. This may include an editorial or a paper for the Evidence for Nursing Research and/or Evidence for Nurse Education series.
  6. Peer-review contributions of members of the editorial team (once or twice a year).
  7. Provide the Editor-in-Chief with advice on the direction of the journal and attend quarterly EBN editors’ meetings (reasonable travel expenses are covered, when meetings are not held remotely).
  8. Buddy and support new members joining the editorial team from the Editorial Development Opportunity programme.
