Editorial Board structure[edit]

The Editorial Board is structured in 10 Topical Areas, each led by a Topical Editor. A Topical Area encompasses a group of 'core' Associate Editors with main expertise in that Topical Area. Topical Areas also have a 'pool' membership of Associate Editors from other Topical Areas, with interdisciplinary expertise. Each Associate Editor is a core member of a single Topical Area, but can be a pool member of several other Topical Areas.

Editorial Board Structure as of March 2017
