Benefits For Editors

It is through the editor’s role that many researchers can build a greater career. It will enhance their reputation and creates visibility in large communities. They also benefit from seeing the latest research in their field before publication and build numerous networks and collaborations, which could accelerate the publication efforts with other journals and boost marketability for promotions.

These positions are usually unpaid, but they offer important benefits. The editor’s network will expand to include fellow editorial-board members around the country and the globe, and they could provide leads on professional opportunities or introduce to new contacts in your discipline.
