Dear HGSA members

Here is a great opportunity to volunteer as an associate editor for the high-quality medical research journal Experimental Biology and Medicine (EBM). The topics for the associate editor are Genomics, Proteomics, and Bioinformatics.

This journal has a history; it was established in 1903 and has been continuously published since then. 

I have worked with this journal for many years, and this is an incredible experience in scientific publishing. Please let me know if you’re interested or if you know someone interested. This is a good opportunity to support your research in this field, and we are looking for someone who is working in genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, and clinical interface, particularly in the area of genetics and genomics.

Here is some background information about the journal.

Experimental Biology and Medicine (EBM) is a global, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the publication of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research in the biomedical sciences. EBM provides both research and review articles as well as mini reviews and brief communications. Articles in EBM represent cutting edge research at the overlapping junctions of the biological, physical and engineering sciences that impact upon the health and welfare of the world's population. EBM is particularly appropriate for publication of papers that are multidisciplinary in nature, are of potential interest to a wide audience, and represent experimental medicine in the broadest sense of the term. However, manuscripts reporting novel findings on any topic in the realm of experimental biology and medicine are most welcome. Topics covered in EBM include: Anatomy/Pathology; Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning Applications to Biomedical Research; Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; Bioimaging; Biomedical Engineering; Bionanoscience; Cell and Developmental Biology; Clinical Trials; Endocrinology and Nutrition; Environmental Health/Biomarkers/Precision Medicine; Genomics, Proteomics, and Bioinformatics; Immunology/Microbiology/Virology; Mechanisms of Aging; Neuroscience; Pharmacology and Toxicology; Physiology and Pathophysiology; Population Health; Stem Cell Biology; Structural Biology; Synthetic Biology; Systems Biology and Microphysiological Systems; and Translational Research.

EBM is the journal of the Society of Experimental Biology and Medicine (SEBM), both of which were created in 1903 by clinician scientists in the US. SEBM and EBM have as their core principles the publication of biomedical research that has direct relevance to the practice of Medicine, and the mentoring of future generations of researchers. Since taking the helm of EBM in 2006 my major goals have been to globalize the journal, and as a result the society, and to add exciting interdisciplinary categories. In terms of globalization over the past 15 years, we have gone from a US based journal, to one which has offices on Six Continents. Steven Goodman serves as Editor-in-Chief from Memphis TN, but we also have US offices in Washington DC and Texas. EBM has four global Editors in Taiwan, Great Britain, Brazil, Ghana and most recently Australia. We also have a China outreach office in Chengdu.

In terms of developing new categories, in 2006 EBM had seven traditional categories that one would expect from the disciplines found within Medical Schools throughout the US. Since that time, we have added 15 new interdisciplinary categories that have allowed the journal to cover the breadth of modern Experimental Biology and Medicine covering the entire translational range from T0 to T4. The globalization of the journal and our now 22 categories have had a huge impact on EBM. In 2006 the journal received 200 original manuscripts and we published 12 annual issues. By 2016 we were receiving about 700 original manuscripts, and we went to 18 issues per year. In 2020 we exceeded 1000 original submissions and we moved to 24 annual issues in 2021. This year we have moved from traditional to gold open access publishing and have, therefore, moved to our new publisher, Frontiers
