Become an Editor

Our Editors: The list of editors who have edited books for us can be found here.

Our Policy: Editors are selected based on qualifications, subject-knowledge, and willingness to complete the editorial tasks on time. They are not selected based on gender, nationality, religion, ethnicity or any other attributes. There are two streams of edited books: publisher-nominated and editor-nominated.

Publisher-nominated books: For publisher-nominated books, we solicit appropriately qualified editors.

Editor-nominated books: Anyone with appropriate qualifications (MBBS, MD, PhD or other relevant qualifications) and/or expertise in any area of biomedical/life/health sciences are welcome to register their interest to be editors. If you wish to edit a book, please contact editor@codonpublications.com with the subject line 'Book editing'. Include a summary of the proposed book, not exceeding 100 words, and sign off with your full credentials including a valid phone number. Do not include any attachments. One of our commissioning editors will contact you within 48 hours for further discussion.

Responsibilities: Editors are expected to keep the manuscripts confidential, provide an unbiased scientific opinion of the manuscript on time and declare any conflict of interest.
