Editorial Board Members for JMU - Call for Nominations

JMIR mhealth & uhealth (mobile and ubiquitous health) (JMU, ISSN 2291-5222) is a new spin-off journal of JMIR, the leading eHealth journal (Impact Factor 2012: 3.8). The journal focusses on health and biomedical applications in mobile and tablet computing, pervasive and ubiquitous computing, wearable computing and domotics. JMIR mHealth & uHealth publishes even faster and has a broader scope with including papers which are more technical or more formative/developmental than what would be published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research. In addition to peer-reviewing paper submissions by researchers, JMIR mHealth & uHealth offers peer-review of medical apps itself (developers can submit an app for peer-review here). JMIR mHealth & uHealth features a rapid and thorough peer-review process, professional copyediting, professional production of PDF, XHTML, and XML proofs (ready for deposit in PubMed Central/PubMed), and an ipad App (in prep.). JMIR mHealth & uHealth adheres to the same quality standards as JMIR and all articles published here are also cross-listed in the Table of Contents of JMIR, the worlds' leading medical journal in health sciences / health services research and health informatics. We now welcome nominations (including self-nominations) for editorial board members. Responsibilities of editorial board members include the identification and recruitment of other EB members, peer-reviewers, and authors. Privileges of being an EB member include a waiver of submission and publishing fees. Editors can be promoted to Associate/Section Editors or Editor-in-chief after a successful try-out period. Please send a letter of interest to the interim editor-in-chief, G. Eysenbach (editor@jmir.org).
