They will need a very good understanding of the relevant research disciplines, good networks in the public health community, and be accomplished and creative communicators across a range of different media.

We are also keen to have an associate editor who is skilled in the use of social media suitable for the journal and publications.

Section editors will work with the Co-Editors in Chief and external peers to identify appropriate public health research in key areas and assess manuscript submissions in their sections for possible publication.
