JPAIR's Editorial Board is made up of internationally renowned academics in the journal's discipline. They are chosen by the editorial team and provide professional input on key policy and content issues. They also review articles that have been submitted, solicit new authors and submissions, and promote the journal to the global academic community. The Editorial Team members improve and strengthen the quality, integrity, reputation, and sustainability of our publication through their field of expertise and substantial work as scientists and researchers.
Recruiting board members
Members of the editorial board must be peers whose opinions are highly respected within the journal's primary discipline; otherwise, their judgments may not be taken seriously.
Identifying potential candidates
Potential candidates may be contacted through referrals from other board members, authors or peer reviewers who have worked for your publication. Both citations and an H-Index are required. It is helpful to send invitation letters to prospective board members while recruiting them. Once approved, they will receive an appointment letter that includes a brief summary of the position, a list of the duties, and a statement that this is an unpaid volunteer position. It can be renewed based on how well it performs. For many journals, a three-year term of office is very typical. Keep a current list of the board members, including their specific areas of expertise, and make notes about their contributions to the process.
