Section editors help shape editorial policy and the operation of the CMEJ. Besides making a considerable contribution to authors and medical education in Canada and abroad, section editors develop their editorial and writing skills and build a national and international reputation required by many institutions for promotion to higher ranks.

Working with the Editor in Chief, section editors

  • Screen articles for compliance with the CMEJ policies
  • Screen articles for relevance and quality: make a desk decline or send for review (or, sometimes, request revisions to comply with CMEJ policies and formatting before review)
  • Communicate with authors regarding revisions
  • Consult with the Editor on accepting submissions for publication (the Editor makes the final decision on terminal disposition of all articles)
  • Work with the copyeditor to produce the page proofs and secure author permission to publish
  • Delegate the peer review of articles to Associate Editors as needed.
  • Co-Section Editors will discharge these same duties but will do so as a team with another co-section editor.

Orientation, personalized training, and mentoring are a normal part of working at the CMEJ and will be provided for anyone joining our Editorial Advisory Board and working as an Associate Editor, Section Editor, or Co-Section Editor.

To work as a Section Editor, prior experience as a journal editor and a letter of reference from someone familiar with editorial work are essential. Canadian citizenship or location is not required. Please send a letter of application outlining relevant experience and training to the Editor in Chief, Dr. Marcel D’Eon, at editor.cmej@usask.ca.
