AH is searching for new assistant editors


Dear SHI members and sympathizers,

the editorial board of Acta Herpetologica, our precious and beloved journal, is searching for new assistant editors. The underlying rationale is: the more we are, the less we work, the better the results. So, who would like to collaborate is asked to forward his/her application by the end of February.

Requirements are as follows:

  • Great motivation (sometimes the work is hard, sometimes tedious, sometimes both; nevertheless it has to be done)
  • A good English knowledge
  • Previous editorial experience (as editor or reviewer)
  • A reasonable scientific CV in the herpetological branch
  • Being member of the Societas Herpetologica Italica for the mandate duration (but not necessarily at the moment of the application)

Candidates are asked to mail me a synthetic CV (max 1 sheet) together with a short list of publications (max 1 sheet), highlighting the above requirements.

The ratification of the new editors can be done during the next SHI meeting (next March, 18th).

Thank you in advance for your surely massive participation,

All the best,

Marco Mangiacotti

Editor in chief
