Anaesthesia Reports is the case report journal of the Association of Anaesthetists. The journal takes the traditional case report to the 21st century by including clinical and educational articles, multimedia pieces, and social media engagement. Anaesthesia Reports was indexed in PubMed Central in February 2020.

The role of the Editor is mostly email and web-based and involves reviewing submitted manuscripts and multimedia items and editing them in preparation for publication. The successful applicants should have a history of publication, be able to write coherent and elegant English, and have good time management skills. Previous editorial experience is not necessary, but experience of acting as a reviewer for papers submitted to peer-review journals is desirable.

The term of office is three years with up to two extensions by mutual agreement. As well as the opportunity to work with an excellent and cohesive editorial team, rewards include free registration at major Association of Anaesthetists’ meetings. Successful applicants are expected to maintain membership of the Association of Anaesthetists, throughout their term of office.

Applicants should submit a short essay of up to 500 words on ‘How current trends in academic publishing will affect case reports’ by email to the Editorial Co-ordinator, Claudia Welburn (, together with a short curriculum vitae (no more than two A4 pages), and a one-page covering letter explaining their reasons for applying. Shortlisted candidates may be asked to perform a brief editorial task as part of the selection process.

We would particularly welcome applications from senior trainees and consultants/SAS doctors who are within the first 10 years of their substantive appointments and looking to develop their reviewing and editing skills.
