Progress in Palliative Care

We are looking for a new Editor-in-Chief with an academic background in end of life care, as well as the passion to drive the journal forward in an exciting period of change. It is a significant role, with high profile, but one that is achievable within a continuing busy working academic timetable.

Progress in Palliative Care embraces all aspects of the management of problems at the end of life. It provides a single forum for current trends and controversies.  It is published on the premise that the field is expanding so fast that a single, easily digestible source, with a strong research orientation, is essential to enable colleagues to keep abreast of new developments. The editorial board is international and includes a wide variety of disciplines.

The successful candidate will be responsible for editorial oversight and decision-making on submissions. He, or she, will have authority to accept articles following successful peer review, and will ensure that reviewers and authors adhere to the Journal’s Code of Publishing Ethics.

Taylor & Francis will provide remuneration for the role to cover any journal-related expenses. Taylor & Francis will supply annual reports reflecting on the performance of the Journal. The Journal utilises an online editorial office system via Editorial Manager.

Becoming the editor of a journal is a rewarding and fulfilling experience where you will build your own networks, promote the research that you are passionate about, and be recognized as a leading figure within the academic community.
