Complementing the Latin American section are African, European, Asian, North American and Australasian regional sections, each with its own Regional Editor.

The Latin American Regional Editor role involves:

  • Coordinating assigned regional publications from submission to acceptance. This includes assessing submitted and revised manuscripts, including the collation and assessment of reviewer feedback;
  • Commissioning and writing editorials; commissioning specific articles;
  • Advising the Editor-in-Chief on, and delegating for him in, regional matters;
  • Providing editorial advice according to her or his unique rural health expertise and experience;
  • Leading the Latin American Regional Editorial Panel, including communication, involvement in decision making and assignment of special regional roles;
  • Allocating articles to reviewers, and assisting in the maintenance of the reviewer panel by monitoring, supporting and motivating regional peer reviewers;
  • Contributing to and advising on international and funding initiatives; contributing to publicity and corporate publications, such as the RRH annual report; and
  • Promoting the Journal at local and national forums.
  • In addition to a clinical background, the ideal candidate will have some experience of the processes of an academic peer reviewed journal and an understanding of the mechanism of online journal review and publication. This is an honorary position.
