My role is to review submitted manuscripts, advice on journal policy and scope, attract new authors, assist in decision-making over issues such as plagiarism, the style of the abstract, monographs, etc.
This journal is a general medical journal published by the Ulster Medical Society that has local focus but international reach - institutions on distribution list include the Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins University. It is indexed in Pubmed/Medicine. The UMJ has strong links with QUB and encourages the submission of local research. Journal content is peer reviewed. One of my rules is to enhance attracting high-quality manuscripts to the journal by providing contructive feedback and suggesting improvements.
