Board membersLink opens in a new window (Editors) are normally recruited initially from Warwick and its partner institutions. However, membership is personal and follows individuals wherever they subsequently work.
All editors are trained, managed and supported by directly by the Editor-in-Chief (EIC).
Following the EIC's lead and direction each editor is responsible for conducting the initial editorial quality review to decide if submitted manuscripts are worth considering for publication.
For manuscripts submitted as research articles they also coordinate the peer-review processes, identifying and soliciting appropriate peer-reviewers and liaising between them and submitting authors. For editorially reviewed works they advise authors on required amendments and manuscript revisions, ahead of publication acceptance.
Editors therefore frequently conduct proactive communications with authors, reviewers and fellow editors. For all manuscripts which are accepted for publication, editors will format (copyedit) and finalise the text layout into Exchanges’ publication-ready format.
