Looking for a way to get more involved with ISMTE? Several volunteer opportunities are now available. Find one that interests you!
Join the Peer Review Week Task Force. Volunteers will work as a team to develop, promote, and implement ISMTE's participation in this year's Peer Review Week. Peer Review Week is a global collaboration across many organizations and stakeholders promoting activities and events that strengthen and celebrate peer review. We will begin organizing and planning in May and June, promote ISMTE's participation in the weeks leading up to Peer Review Week, and oversee any events/activities during Peer Review Week (September 17-21). The task force will communicate primarily by email but may schedule conference calls as needed.
Join the Social Media Committee. The Social Media Committee is looking to expand its offerings. They are looking for new members and anyone who would be interested in the following:
- Creating social posts for the upcoming ISMTE meeting (take a look at the program and sessions, posters, etc.) and create a schedule of posts to promote the meeting and program with posting starting in June/July
- Reaching out to current ISMTE board/members and collect short bios, headshots and social handles/accounts to do a continuous “who is ISMTE” on social media
- Monitoring specific social accounts to share/re-tweet relevant content regarding the STM publishing industry OR create a monthly “what’s happening in STM publishing” roundup based on industry news for an ISMTE specific post
