Editorial Office News (EON) is the monthly publication of ISMTE. The publication is a members-only benefit providing readers with informative articles related to working in an Editorial Office. Topics are wide-reaching but focus on defining editorial roles and best practices, new technologies, hot topics in scholarly publishing, Society news, messages from the Board of Directors, announcements, conference reports, and upcoming events. EON is published eleven times per year.
There are 2 EON editors, and the editorship is a 4-year commitment. The new Editor will spend 2 years as a Committee Chair and then 2 years as an ISMTE Board Member.
The main objective for the EON Editor is to successfully publish the monthly issue in a timely manner. The Editor recruits and solicits writers (both members and non-members) to write on topics of interest to professionals who work in Editorial Offices. The Editors should also report on Society announcements and important events. The Editors are helped by an Editorial Team who solicits articles and assists with the editing and proofing of each issue. Upcoming initiatives include refining the peer-review process for EON, recruiting new contributions at conferences, and possibly looking into plagiarism checking software.
