As a journal editor, you’ll be working with researchers at different stages of their careers – some who will have published many times and others who are at the very start of their research career. As a publisher, we want to support researchers at all stages, keeping up to date with the latest trends and research findings, publishing their first paper, developing their research profile, or moving beyond their PhD to find a career that’s right for them (maybe even taking on the role of a journal editor.)
From encouraging people outside of academia to read your work, to exploring the many and varied career paths open to researchers, there’s something for everyone in our podcast series. Created with Vitae – the international program that champions professional development for researchers – the series features interviews from people working in all aspects of research, and offers tips and practical advice that you can pass on to the researchers you work with (and you might even glean some valuable insights yourselves.)
