BSACI seeks new Editor of Clinical & Experimental Allergy 

Call for Expressions of Interest

Clinical & Experimental Allergy is essential reading for allergy practitioners and research scientists with an interest in allergic diseases and mechanisms. 

Professor Wardlaw and his fellow editors have indicated that they wish to step down from their role as editors of the journal at the end of 2015. Wiley Blackwell and the BSACI are therefore looking to appoint a new editor who could possibly work alongside the current Editor for three months (pending their journal experience) and then take over full editorial control of the journal at the start of 2016.

At this stage the BSACI are asking the allergy community for expressions of interest in the editorship of Clinical & Experimental Allergy. The Editor will be appointed for five years in the first instance with the option of a further five years by mutual consent.  The Editor will have a strong track record in research into one or more aspects of allergic disease.  

Individuals who are interested in becoming Editor of Clinical & Experimental Allergy should submit a one page CV together with a short paper (no more than two pages of A4) summarising the following:
Research experience 
Other relevant experience and perceived strengths
How they would envisage managing the editorship of Clinical & Experimental Allergy

Expressions of interest should reach the BSACI office by no later than Monday April 28th 2014.  Professor Wardlaw would be happy to have informal discussions with interested individuals either by email: or telephone 0116 2563841. 

Please email your expressions of interest to Fiona Rayner at at the BSACI office.

Selected individuals will be invited to submit a full application by 31st August 2014. 

NB: It is expected that the journal will most likely move from print to solely online publication once the new Editor takes over.
