The Journal of Integer Sequences
( https://cs.uwaterloo.ca/journals/JIS/ )
founded by Neil Sloane, is seeking some additional editors to help with 
the large volume of submissions.

Why you should become an editor:
	-- you get to read interesting papers before they appear
	-- you provide a valuable service to the mathematical community
	-- you get to improve papers by suggesting changes, additional 
citations to the literature, and so forth
	-- you get some stimulus for your own mathematical investigations
	-- you get a little status by adding yet another editorial board to your CV
	-- you indirectly support the OEIS

Members of the editorial board typically handle no more than 6 papers 
per year.  Handling a paper involves skimming the paper, deciding if 
it's worth refereeing, choosing referees, obtaining reports from the 
referees, reading the reports, and making a recommendation to the 
Editor-in-chief (me).

If you are interested in becoming a member of the editorial board, and 
if you are current or emeritus faculty in a mathematical area at a 
university, please send me your name and any additional information you 
think might be helpful.  I am particularly interested in having some 
women editors and some more editors outside North America.

Regards,

Jeffrey Shallit
