Call for Editor Nominations
ASH has begun the process of selecting editors to lead three of the Society’s premier publications and online libraries — (1) the ASH Self-Assessment Program (ASH-SAP), (2) the ASH Image Bank, and (3) The Hematologist.
The Senior Executive Editor of ASH-SAP will serve for the 2023-2025 term and oversee the ninth edition of the most comprehensive hematology self-assessment program to date.
The next Editor-in-Chief of the ASH Image Bank will serve for the 2023-2025 term and direct the review and solicitation of image submissions across a wide range of hematologic topics.
The Hematologist Editor-in-Chief will also serve from 2023 through 2025 and will lead the editorial board, and guide the overall content strategy, of the Society’s official bimonthly newsletter.
Successful candidates for each of these positions must demonstrate exemplary writing, reviewing, and editing skills. ASH members may self-nominate for any of these positions by submitting a letter of interest and a brief description of previous editorial experience. Members are also encouraged to nominate a colleague by submitting a brief informal endorsement of that individual along with a summary of their editorial experience. All submissions should be sent to EditorSearch@hematology.org by the deadline of March 31, 2022. See below for a more in-depth description of each role and its ideal qualifications.
