Editorial Quality Advisor

Research Square is the leader in author-oriented solutions in the world of academic publishing. We develop tools and services for use by major international publishers to improve the publishing experience for their authors and for the scientific industry as a whole.

We are growing quickly and will be supporting editorial operations for a number of major academic journals. As an Editorial Quality Advisor (EQA) at Research Square, you will check manuscripts to determine whether they meet certain guidelines, from straightforward information (e.g., valid author email addresses) to more complex scientific or publishing questions (e.g., reporting of methodology and statistics). Editorial Quality Advisors are able to work from home (within the US), though our remote team is highly interactive and supportive whether though video chat, Slack or weekly team meetings. Training will be provided.

Skills & Requirements:

  • Master’s degree in a life sciences field
  • Experience and familiarity with assessing reporting for statistical tests
  • Experience with scientific manuscripts and publishing
  • Strong written and oral communications skills
  • Tech-savvy and highly adaptable
  • Sharp attention to detail and ability to identify problems/patterns

Bonus points for the following:

  • Doctoral-level degree in science
  • Experience in clinical research, molecular biology, bioinformatics, or related fields
  • Experience writing and publishing peer-reviewed academic papers
