Career Development Panel Series 3 –
When and How to Get Involved on an Editorial Board or NIH Study Section:
How to publish impactful editorials, perspectives, and opinion articles in scholarly journals

Drawing on faculty interest, the Center for Faculty Development has organized a series of four webinars on specific aspects of academic career development, whether to build toward promotion consideration or to enrich professional knowledge and experience. Learn more about where to find and how to join initiatives or committees of interest, the dimensions of major administrative roles, how and when to get involved on an editorial board, and, ultimately, when it makes sense to say yes to a new responsibility—or decline the opportunity.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this activity, participants were able to:

  • Discuss ways to be involved in NIH study sections/reviewing grant applications
  • Illustrate best approaches to conveying an interest in getting involved as an editorial board member or in an NIH study section
  • Assess best approach to publish an impactful editorial/perspectives/opinion articles
