One of the main functions assigned to the IAEA by its Statute is to foster the exchange of scientific and technical information and the dissemination of knowledge in the nuclear field among Member States.
To facilitate the effective exchange and dissemination of information relevant to the IAEA's work and mandate, the Division of Conference and Document Services coordinates and supports the implementation of these activities for its users and clients, both internal and external, by organizing meetings and conferences, issuing documents in the six official IAEA languages, i.e. Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish, and editing, printing and distributing publications.
The IAEA has an extensive publishing programme, implemented by its Publishing Section, which produces a wide range of publications on nuclear related issues in both print and electronic formats. Inputs in the form of manuscripts of scientific/technical publications, advocacy items, electronic publishing requests and graphic design proposals originating from all parts of the house are handled by the Publishing Section.
Reporting to the Unit Head, the Editor carries out detailed editing of complex scientific/technical manuscripts, as well as a limited number of policy related documents, in compliance with international scientific editing and publishing standards and the IAEA's publishing policies and practices. The Editor ensures that the IAEA's quality standards are being met in all publications and policy related documents and that customers receive professional, efficient and expeditious editorial services that are responsive to their needs. He/she coordinates the production and publication of scientific and technical manuscripts and policy related documents.
