Managing co-editor

The editor-in-chief, assisted by the co-editor-in-chief, directs the overall strategy of the journal and acts as an ambassador for the journal. The managing editors coordinate the workflow between editors, reviewers and authors.

BEC executive editors

The executive editors collaborate with the editor-in-chief and co-editor-in-chief to effectively direct the overall strategy of the journal as the executive team. Major decisions for the journal are taken by the executive team. Executive editors are consulted by the editor when major decisions must be taken. In collaboration with the associate editors, they are involved as manuscript editors.
