BSA Early Career Advisory Board
In 2020, BSA welcomed its very first Early Career Advisory Board (ECAB). This group of early-career botanists engages with and advises the editors of the American Journal of Botany, Applications in Plant Sciences, and the Plant Science Bulletin in a number of ways, including recommending timely topics for review papers, identifying papers in pre-print archives that may be appropriate to publish in our journals, and advising on issues of importance to the publications team. Service on the advisory board can also be a stepping-stone to joining the editorial board as an Associate Editor.
Advisory Board members are featured on the Botanical Society of America website and receive free membership in the society, opportunities to participate in editorial board meetings, and will gain experience and insight into how the scientific publishing process works.
