Mutual Rewards: Engaging the Field and Creating a Path Toward Academic Journal Editorship.

Journal Article (Editorial)

In this commentary, the inaugural cohort of Academic Medicine assistant editors shares their experiences in this role and the value of creating a path toward academic journal editorship for early- and mid-career scholars. They are a group with diverse backgrounds and a common commitment to advance scholarship in medical education. They collectively describe how they have contributed to the journal in multiple ways, reflect on how they navigated onboarding challenges in the midst of a pandemic, and, most important, share why this role matters for the medical education scholarship community. They express how the assistant editor role has been mutually rewarding, allowing the assistant editors to gain entry to academic journal editorship while also serving the journal and its community.
