Editorial board members actively contribute to the development and good management of Frontiers. They are appointed by the Executive Editor for a fixed term of three years, renewable annually by the Executive Editor.

Expected functions and duties of editorial board members include:

  • participation in an annual meeting of the Editorial Board (usually at The Forum’s Annual Conference or by phone) and additional, occasional conference calls throughout the year as needed
  • acting as ambassadors for and supporting and promoting the journal
  • seeking out the best authors and best work (e.g. from meeting abstracts) and actively encouraging submissions
  • reviewing submissions to the journal (expected 2-3 per year)
  • evaluating book proposals and special projects
  • occasionally accepting commissions to write editorials, reviews and commentaries on papers in their specialist area
  • nomination of manuscript reviewers

Editors, editorial board members and peer reviewers are required to comply with Frontier’s Conflict of Interest Policy.
