The Alliance seeks current members to serve as reviewers for AAIM Perspectives in The American Journal of Medicine. The term for serving as a reviewer is two years.
The primary qualifications for serving as a reviewer are a strong interest in issues relevant to academic internal medicine and a willingness to apply a critical eye to publications. All reviewers are expected to review assigned commentaries within three weeks of receipt, assessing the quality of the paper, the "publishability" of the content, and the level of interest it will engender in academic internal medicine. The number of reviews assigned each year will depend on the number of commentaries submitted and the number of reviewers available.
The deadline to sign up is Monday, November 6, 2017. If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org at your convenience.
