eLife welcomes new editors in ten major subject areas


23-12-2014

eLife is happy to welcome new reviewing editors in: biochemistry, biophysics and structural biology, cell biology, computational and systems biology, genomics and evolutionary biology, genes and chromosomes, human biology and medicine, neuroscience, and in plant biology.

 

eLife is delighted to announce the newest members of the Board of Reviewing Editors (BRE). They bring strong expertise in each of their areas and will help maintain the efficient and constructive editorial process that eLife is known for.

The BRE is responsible for reviewing articles, at the request of the senior editors, and recruiting additional reviewers as needed. Once reviews are in, the BRE and reviewers consult with one another to finalise their decision and form a consolidated set of comments for the author -- which is what sets the eLife’s editorial process apart. Learn all about the eLife editorial process on our website.

Kang Shen, who joins as an eLife editor for neuroscience from Stanford University, US said:
“I’m excited about eLife because it is a top-notch research journal where decisions are made by leading colleagues in the field. I also like the reviewing process -- where there are more communications between the reviewers and a commitment to a fast turnaround.”
