Nyland selected for Journal of Pain Editorial Fellowship

The Journal of Pain has selected Jennifer Nyland, PhD, assistant professor of neural and behavioral sciences at Penn State College of Medicine, for its editorial fellowship.

The Journal of Pain has an international and diverse authorship base, publishing original articles and reviews related to all aspects of pain, including basic, translational and clinical research, epidemiology, education and health policy. The journal is the scientific publication of the United States Association for the Study of Pain (USASP), whose mission is to promote scientific advances that reduce the burden of pain.

The Editorial Fellowship gives participants the opportunity to receive training and mentorship by shadowing experienced journal editors, thereby obtaining a direct and immersive experience in how a manuscript is handled, from submission to final decision. Five fellows were selected to work closely with the journal’s Editor-in-Chief, Tonya Palermo, PhD, and the six associate editors, to develop their editorial skills. Each fellow is paired with a mentor to learn the roles of editor, reviewer and publisher to gain a broad understanding of the overall scientific publishing process. Upon successful completion of the one-year fellowship, editorial fellows become members of the journal’s editorial board.

“I’m looking forward to gaining insight into the editorial process from the Editor-in-Chief, Tonya Palermo, and the Journal of Pain’s editorial team,” Nyland said. “This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the content and direction of the journal moving forward.”
