Editorial board

Would you be interested in joining the BJPsych International editorial board? We are encouraging applications in 2020, particularly applications from underrepresented groups in academic psychiatry. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, including gender, age and ethnicity. We want an editorial board that reflects our values of equality and diversity with representation from a range of backgrounds.

We are also keen to strengthen our engagement with readers and contributors in Africa (Nigeria especially) and India, and welcome applications from people based in these regions of the world.
