Emily Sena appointed Editor-in-Chief of BMJ Open Science
September 2017: Congratulations to Dr Emily Sena, CCBS Research Fellow, on her appointment as Editor-in-Chief of new journal, BMJ Open Science.
BMJ Open Science, a new journal supporting developments in clinical medicine, launches today. It will apply open science principles to preclinical and basic research, with open access, open peer review, and has an open data policy.
Dr Sena's own research focuses on the validity of preclinical studies. She is leader of the international CAMARADES collaboration and a key member of the Edinburgh CAMARADES group led by Professor Malcolm Macleod.
She has taken on the role because of the opportunity to shape a new journal and contribute to the changing landscape of biomedical research reporting. This, Emily believes, will contribute to improving the validity of preclinical research.
The journal will provide a platform to promote and engender trust in the research we publish, and transparency in the processes we use to achieve this.
