Recruiting Topical Advisory Panel Members for Liquids


The Liquids Editorial Office is pleased to inform you that applications are open for the Topical Advisory Panel. Should you decide to serve on the Topical Advisory Panel, you would be responsible for some of the following tasks, depending on your availability:

  • Providing regular reviews of manuscripts;
  • Setting up at least one Special Issue (SI) in partnership with a senior researcher within two years of your appointment and proposing a detailed strategy plan for the SI. The topic of the proposal should be within the scope of Liquids (ISSN: 2673-8015). The scope of the Special Issue should be broad enough to attract a reasonable number of submissions but narrow enough to provide a cohesive collection of articles. The Special Issue should cover a small part of the scope of Liquids;
  • Providing a detailed strategy plan for the SI, including assisting in preparing the Special Issues’/Topics’ titles, aims and scopes, summaries, and keywords, as well as soliciting papers and promoting SIs;
  • Providing support for Special Issues/Topics related to your expertise when their Guest Editor(s) are not available. This includes SI promotion via social media and giving advice on some scientific matters;
  • Promoting our journal at conferences (adding 1–2 slides into your presentation, distributing flyers, recommending the journal to your colleagues, etc.), on social media, and other relevant platforms;
  • Working with Editorial Board Members or the Editorial Office to promote high-quality/featured papers (for example, writing summaries or highlights for editor-selected papers).

To qualify as a Topical Advisory Panel Member, applicants must:

  • Have expertise and experience in a field related to Liquids;
  • Have completed their Ph.D. within the last approx. 10 years;
  • Have published at least 6–8 papers in the last 5 years as a first author or corresponding author;
  • Currently hold an independent research position in academia or at a government institute.

Each year, members’ performance is evaluated, and outstanding members are promoted to the Editorial Board by the Editor-in-Chief. Please click on the following link to submit your application: https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/liquids/topical_advisory_panel_application.
