CSC Journals encourage scholars, researchers and academic professionals from different fields of research consortium to join our journals whether as editor or reviewer.

It is important to understand the role and responsibilities of each group of editors associated with the journal. Below we define editor role, their responsibilities and benefits & privileges they get after joining CSC Journals network of professionals.

Editor Role

CSC Journals strongly believe that the reason of its success is the Collective Efforts Strategies adopted by editorial board members of the journals. When a new editor joins, he get benefit from the journal work which is done by other editors. Similarly, other editorial members also expect to get benefit from newly appointed editors. They believe that with the addition of new editorial board member, the journal will get more importance especially in the universities and associations that are in editor's territory to get quality research papers while strengthening journal International reputation.

Editor Types

At CSC Journals, each journal has its editorial board hierarchy which may include:

Editor-in-Chief (EiC) - Manages and monitor overall activities of the journal including making recommendations to other editors, initiating peer-review by assigning manuscript to editors, recommending journal to libraries and conferences.

Associate Editor-in-Chief (AEiC) - Our journals that cover a wide range of research topics rely on AEiCs to provide additional advice to editors. Associate editors may select reviewers (typically anonymous) for manuscripts and, once the reviews are returned, give their own report and review summary to help EiC in making the final decision.
