Board member re-elections

As per the bylaws of WikiJMed "Editorial Board Members shall serve four-year terms. There is no limit to the number of terms any individual Editorial Board Member may serve." [4]
In the editorial board of WikiJMed [5], there are 3 members whose current term ends on January 1, 2019: Mikael Häggström (myself), Gwinyai Masukume (Assistant editor-in-chief) and Lisa Kipersztok.
I think an appropriate first step in a re-election is for the person to actively apply for it. I therefore now add myself below, and advise the other two to do the same if interested in continuing at the positions. I am sure many participants know us pretty well already, but just in case, we can re-introduce ourselves too, preferably by the template as per below. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 18:09, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

Also, as per the bylaws, Eligible voters for Editorial Board Member elections are:
(a) Current Editorial Board Members.
(b) Peer reviewers of Wiki.J.Med. who have completed at least one peer review.
(c) Editors with at least 30 edits to Wiki.J.Med. pages.
(d) Not an individual voting for herself/himself.

Votes and comments
  •   Support - Mikael has been thoughtful a diligent in his work with WikiJMed, and has great technical aptitude for the ancillary technical elements (emails, web addresses, issn & crossref registrations etc). T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 00:08, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support - Mikael founded the WikiJournal of Medicine. Over the past four or so years two new journals have been added to what is now a successful Family. Besides this, his images which illustrate many Wikipedia pages make Mikael one of the most globally influential Physicians of our times. In my view, time permitting, him remaining at the helm would be apt. Ear-phone (discusscontribs) 15:40, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support - Mikael has done a great job and I don't see a better suited candidate at the moment. --Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 13:19, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Votes and comments
  •   Support - I look forward to another term of highly beneficial contributions from you. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 16:08, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support - Gwinyai has been a great contributor to the project, bringing both ideas and action to the board. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 00:08, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support - Gwinyai is a great asset to the Ed board. He is very critical which helps keep everyone sharp. On the other hand sometimes you should watch that this doesn't run out of hand, but until now we haven't had any problems like that so I am reassured. Also a less positive aspect is your refraining from much on-wiki editing. --Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 13:23, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

  •   Neutral support as Associate Editor. I think full editorship is premature in this stage. Would you be willing to join in this role? --Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 20:35, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

I'd also support as associate editor if we wanted to formalise a principle that applicants without prior peer-review-coordination experience should join as associate editor first before moving to the board after assisting with a organising a peer review (as per discussion here).

Associate editor application of Sherylock

Sherylock
Areas of expertise: Immunology, microbiology, hematology, inflammation

Relevant experience:

Professional - My college studies were in Medical Lab Technology. I was certified as a phlebotomist. I have performed Multiple Mini-Interviews of potential medical students for the Dean's office at my local College of Medicine for a number of years; they were the first medical school in the US to pilot MMIs and I'm proud to have been a part of that. I have attended medical seminars and had the opportunity to network with a number of professionals to maintain my passion for medical topics.
Publishing - I read medical research papers, synopsize and tweet the ones I think are of particular importance or interest to the medical community or the public; my followers include Guardian Science and various doctors. I have also proofread non-medical books for friends publishing their own works.
Open - I have edited Wikipedia under a different account for over 10 years. Most of my editing has been article cleanup, copyediting, finding reliable references and simplifying complex terminology for the general reader, but I have created a few articles in conjunction with the Women in Red project. I attended the 2018 WikiConference North America where I was introduced to Wikidata, and hope to develop querying skills. I also attended the medical and dental lectures where I made some potential collaborative contacts. As I wish to maintain some privacy, I will be happy to answer questions regarding specific places/accounts via the private Board email.

I confirm that I will act in accordance with the policies of the WikiJournal of Medicine. Sherylock (discusscontribs) 05:18, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

  Support - This applicant seems to have solid Wiki experience which will surely be useful (some of us - me - struggle to find our way round the Wiki system) but not much cognate experience of academic writing or editing. Rwatson1955 Talk 06:49, 11 December 2018‎
