Job duties: The work of the Coordinating Editor is to keep everything in the group moving. I help reviewers, editors, Administration/Coordinators and Trial Search Coordinators and any of those doing research with the group in order that they complete their tasks as sufficiently and smoothly as possible. This generally involves working alongside the Trial Search Co-ordinator to ensure that the searches are comphrensive and as efficiently undertaken as is possible, helping the trial locator physically acquire studies. Seeking funding is essential in order to keep the group going, working alongside reviewers and the other editors to help steer the group. Another part of my job is to help disseminate this work partly by academic papers and also oral presentations.
