Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B

We all know that times are strange right now, and the lives of scientists very different from normal. For those who are missing conference travel, and the opportunity to discuss your work and build collaborations with other research groups, we would like to suggest a replacement project: why not edit a theme issue of Philosophical Transactions B?

Each issue is carefully planned out, so is more like a book than a standard collection of related papers. The broad scope means that you are not restricted in terms of subject area, and you can be inventive with different article types. As Guest Editor, you will have the opportunity to build your network and gain editorial experience, with a high-profile Editorial Board and experienced staff to help you at every step of the way.

Read about the experience of former Guest Editors and download the flyer. Then, if you are interested, feel free to contact the Commissioning Editor, Helen Eaton ( with your ideas.
