Editorial Fellowship

ENYGO - IJGC Editorial Fellowships

   

 

Background

The International Journal of Gynecological Cancer plays a vital role in dissemination of scientific research in the field of gynecologic oncology and related disciplines.  The European Network of Young Gynae Oncologists (ENYGO), European Society of Gynaecological Oncology (ESGO), and the International Journal of Gynecological Cancer (IJGC)  have established the Editorial Fellowships for junior faculty and trainees within the ENYGO network (a network of over 700 juniors and trainees in gynaecological oncology and related subspecialties who are under 40 years of age) operating under the umbrella and with the support of the European Society of Gynaecological Oncology (ESGO). Selected individuals will work with either the Editor-in-Chief or one of the Associate Editors for the period of 3 months.

Fellowship Objectives

During their appointment, fellows will gain experience in medical editing, peer review processing, proposal/manuscript development, medical journal production, working with authors, editorial board management, and implementing a strategic vision plan. The objectives of the project are:

 

  • Increase interest in “editorial” and other publication-related activities for trainees and fellows 
  • Creating opportunities for further development dedicated especially for the authors of the ENYGO LiFE Report (published as an IJGC supplement)
  • Increase understanding and participation in the IJGC review process
  • Tighten the relationship between the“new” generation of gynaecological oncologists and more older generations
  • Increase the visibility of IJGC among younger gynaecological oncologists
  • Learn about the process for fast-track mechanisms for submitted manuscripts, which will increase the satisfaction of the authors.

Testimonials

Dear fellows,

The Editorial Team at the International Journal of Gynecological Cancer is offering a 3-month Editorial Internship for all those interested in learning the mechanisms involved in processing of manuscript submission, peer-review analysis, revisions, and ultimately production and publication.  

This experience will match the Editorial Intern with either the Editor-in-Chief or one of the Associate Editors, and together they will work to assure for a very positive and productive learning experience.
