The Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (RSTMH) is a society of over 1,500 members from more than 90 countries, who work in, or are interested in tropical medicine and global health.
RSTMH publishes two peer-reviewed scientific journals. Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (Transactions) was launched in 1908, is published monthly and is a hybrid journal. International Health was launched in 2009, is published every two months. International Health flipped to being fully open access in 2020. Both journals are published by Oxford University Press, and we currently work with an external editorial office to support the peer review process. Both titles have high profile Editors in Chief (EIC) - Professor Sir Brian Greenwood is EIC for Transactions, and Professor David Molyneux for International Health as well as excellent editorial boards of Associate Editors and Editorial Advisers who oversee the peer review process. Following a restructure 3 years ago the journals have been steadily improving in terms of Impact Factor, submissions and special content. Supported by the Editors in Chief and other partners, an exciting programme of special issues and supplements is in place and also being developed for the future.
We’re looking for an experienced Managing Editor who will relish the opportunity to oversee these two growing journals, and help us achieve our ambitious goals. RSTMH is a small team so the ideal candidate needs to be happy to work independently and also be an effective team player. They should be equally comfortable writing a new strategy for the journals, networking to identify great researchers and professionals, and answering day to day queries from authors or reviewers.
