  • They seem a good candidate for assoc editor status, and it would be useful experience for them as well as helpful skills for us. We've been a bit stalled on applications over the last year, so it will be good to get organised again. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 11:59, 11 June 2022 (UTC)
I agree. I made an entry on the user's talk page whether he's still interested. If so, I think we can go ahead and approve this application. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 15:52, 16 June 2022 (UTC)

Pending more specific presentation. I'm tending towards support, as the applicant seems active in research and publishing according to orcid ([1]). I think it is appropriate to let him join us. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 03:12, 2 August 2022 (UTC)
Dr. Moscote-Salazar, some questions that have been raised are:
  • Would you be able to provide a webpage or other presentation about yourself? The link provided ( directs to a more general website.
  • Could you provide one or two sentences of what motivates you to join WikiJMed?
  • Would you be willing to begin contributing as an associate editor? The tasks can be described here: WikiJournal_of_Medicine/Associate_editors. We feel we can really need some help with peer review coordination, and you'll have the opportunity to later become promoted to editorial board membership.
