Frontiers Editorial Board

  • Date: December, 2021
  • Department: Publications
Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment Seeks to Expand its Editorial Board with An Open Call for Editorial Board Members
Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment seeks a diverse group of scholars to help expand its existing editorial board. Frontiers publishes cutting-edge interdisciplinary science, and prides itself on clear, accessible language and broad appeal to a diverse international audience. Frontiers’ content is renowned for its value to scientists, resource managers, policy makers, teachers, students, and many others in applied science and conservation.

Frontiers’ editorial board members, also known as associate editors, serve as the journal’s subject-matter experts. Their principal responsibilities are to assess manuscripts, assign reviewers to vet manuscripts deemed appropriate for review, and ultimately make recommendations to the editor-in-chief (EiC) based on their own assessment and the reviewers’ comments.

Frontiers values diversity in all its forms. As an ESA journal, Frontiers welcomes and encourages participation by all individuals regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, national origin, physical or mental difference, politics, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, or subculture. In our efforts to expand and build a broadly representative editorial board, Frontiers is actively seeking a wide applicant pool that is diverse in geography, nationality, culture, race and ethnicity, gender identity and expression, and areas of expertise. Frontiers especially encourages applications from members of groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in academic publishing.
