Journal Reviewers

Peer review is an essential part of research publication. Although ISOQOL encourages all members to volunteer as a peer reviewer for either the ISOQOL-owned Journal of Patient-Reported Outcomes (JPRO) or the Springer-owned and ISOQOL-affiliated Quality of Life Research Journal (QLR), you do not need to be an ISOQOL member to volunteer. Learn more about becoming a reviewer here.

Associate Editors

Currently, both JPRO and QLR are seeking to recruit new Associate Editors for multiple open positions. Learn more about preferred experience and application instructions for each journal here.
