We are delighted to announce the establishment of our inaugural Early Career Advisory Board at Organic Chemistry Frontiers. This initiative aims to provide a direct channel for engaging with early-career researchers, supporting their professional development, and infusing our journal with fresh innovative perspectives from the younger generation.
We warmly invite you to nominate an emerging investigator to the board or encourage your colleagues to self-nominate before 30 November 2023.
Role of the Early Career Advisory Board
At Organic Chemistry Frontiers, we value the voices of early-career researchers. Joining the board, you will be part of a dynamic group of emerging investigators, helping shape the future of a leading organic chemistry journal and benefiting from networking opportunities with the journal’s Editorial and Advisory Board members.
Your insights will be invaluable as you provide feedback on the journal’s scientific standards, suggest emerging topics and researchers worth featuring, and contribute to promotional and visibility initiatives within your community.
Terms of Service
Normally, members of the Early Career Advisory Board will serve a term of two years, with an option for reappointment for a maximum of two consecutive terms.
- Nominations are open to researchers of any nationality from academia or industry.
