Editor-in-Chief – Naaz Shareef
Hi over there! My name is Naaz Shareef and I am currently a second-year medical student. Besides being a medical student, I am proud to say that I am the current Chair of the Editorial board of RAMS. Being the Editor-in-Chief gives me a lot of responsibilities, which is why I will be using my to-do-lists a lot more this year! Together with all the editors, reviewers and my two right hands, Maaike and Joyce, we will be releasing three editions this year. My position also includes keeping an eye on everyone, but because of our great team I know our upcoming editions will also be great.
My goal for this academic year is to include more work from bachelor’s students in the journal of RAMS, including articles from the Research and Innovations Projects. I hope to inspire you all with our editions to involve more in writing. Hopefully we
will meet in the future, maybe as part of our board. Don’t hesitate to send me an email in case of any questions!
Hello everyone! My name is Maaike Plug and I am a third-year student doing my pre-master’s for medical school. Before this, I studied Medical Biology for three years. I joined RAMS since March 2018 and currently I am fulfilling the role as the Scientific Editor-in-Chief. This means that I am responsible for the scientific articles, and their quality, in RAMS. These articles educate students about research in the scientific field in an approachable way. Furthermore, I guide the reviewing process of the articles. My goal is to enthuse students for the scientific field and to make RAMS a journal to be proud of! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have a scientific article or if you want to be part of the reviewing team.
Hi there! My name is Joyce Krekels and I am currently doing my Master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences. This academic year, I am fulfilling the position of Editorial Editor-in-Chief, which makes me responsible for all the editorial content in RAMS. In general, I guide our editors during the writing process of the articles and I try to provide them with feedback to improve their writing skills and their articles even more. This year I hope to attract more students in the field of scientific research by providing interesting and easy-accessible editorial articles in our upcoming editions of RAMS. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
