Call for Guest Editors (600 USD – 1000 USD honorarium)

Dear Colleagues,

It gives me a great pleasure to announce the launching of Exploration of Digital Health Technologies (EDHT), an open access journal published by Open Exploration Publishing in the field of digital health.

To promote the development of the journal, we are currently searching for Guest Editors who could lead Journal Special Issues in EDHT, as explicated below.

Needed qualifications for the Guest Editor-candidates

  • Research experience in the topic of the suggested Journal Special Issue (see below the Aims and Scope of the journal)
  • Scopus h-index reaching the medium level or above in the field of the Special Issue (in case of several Guest Editors, at least one of them should have Scopus h-index reaching the medium level or above)

What we offer

  • All accepted manuscripts will be published in open access free of charge.
  • 600 USD honorarium will go for the Guest Editor (or the Co Guest Editor team) providing that the Special Issue publishes at least 6 articles. If the Special Issue publishes over 10 articles, Guest Editor(s) will receive additional 400 USD bonus. The honorarium and bonus will be paid after this special issue is complete.
  • All published manuscripts will have the chance to compete for “Most Cited Paper Award” to recognize the top six highly cited papers yearly (involving monetary awards for both the winning manuscript  authors and the respective Guest Editor(s)).

In case of interest – please contact our journal assistant at

With best wishes,
