Editors & Boards

Last Update: 09 January, 2024 | 12:19

Brieflands, an STM publisher, works with academic institutions for independent journal publishing. Editors, chosen by institutions and assessed annually, ensure editorial independence and declare conflicts. The Editor-in-chief oversees content.

Chairman & EIC

  • Brieflands, as an STM publisher, contracts with academic universities and institutions to provide publishing services for their journals. The editors of these journals are introduced by their respective owners and are re-evaluated annually by the governing board of Brieflands to ensure that they meet the editorial board's criteria for independence and responsibility. Therefore, staff editors are completely independent of the publisher.   
     
  • The Brieflands editors are paid a fixed salary by the journal owners, and their payments are not linked to the number of papers published in the journal. Editors are required to declare all relevant conflicts of interest and must not participate in reviewing any paper for which they have a competing interest. The editor-in-chief is responsible for the scientific context of all published materials in the journal. A conflict of interest statement is declared below each staff editor, which shows their relationship to activities over the previous 12 months since the last update. However, relevant competing interests from previous years will also be taken into account when deciding whether it is appropriate for an editor to handle a paper.
