2017 Editage North American Conference Winner
Birat Journal of Health Sciences
In the past eight years I have worked in various jobs ranging from medical transcription and administrative to my current position of managing editor of the Birat Journal of Health Sciences. It has been a wonderful learning experience that has provided direction.
For the last four years I have been working at the medical college, it has given me the opportunity to collaborate with some of the finest intellectuals in the medical profession. My transition into managing editor for the Birat Journal of Health Sciences has allowed me to gain more industry exposure.
Journal management is challenging, I have been focused on plagiarism issues and wrote an editorial, which you can read here. It is indeed a great learning experience, and I am sure with the help of supportive organizations like ISMTE I will gain more exposure and useful industry tools.
