Role and Responsibilities

As an Editor, your contribution to the journal would involve joining an international board of academic Editors who are responsible for checking the suitability of manuscripts within their field of expertise and guiding them through the peer review process.  The core responsibilities of an Editor lie in three main areas: journal development, peer review and journal advocacy.

Journal development

The Editor highlights promotion-worthy content to the Publisher and Editors-in-Chief.  The Editor provides feedback and suggests improvements for the journal. The Editor writes occasional reviews or commentaries for the journal upon invitation and suggests commissioning opportunities in their topic areas.

Peer Review

The Editor handles new manuscripts submitted to the journal, ensuring peer review is swift, thorough and efficient, and that appropriate peer reviewers are selected. The Editor ensures all manuscripts recommended for acceptance meet the standards and scope of the journal.

Journal advocacy

The Editor is an ambassador for the Journal in their field, encouraging submissions and highlighting the ethos, scope and aims of the Journal. Where called upon, the Editor assists the Editor-in-Chief in preparing and executing strategies to develop the journal.

Our Editors will receive training, and our in-house editorial team will also provide administrative support.
