Ask the Editor
What do you like most about your job? I think that the best part of being an editor is that we get to read research results before they are made public. This way we get to witness and to be part of the process of developing a study into a story, which the community then experiences.
The best advice I have ever been given is… to not let fear of failure guide my actions. It can hinder progress and creativity and reduce our output to a fraction of our potential.
