This indicator pertains to membership of editorial boards of scientific/scholarly journals or publishing houses.
This category concerns memberships of editorial boards (but not advisory boards) of scientific/scholarly journals or publishing houses. Membership of such a board is customarily based on a certain status and reputation in the field, regardless of the journal’s or editorial board’s approach to reviewing submissions.
Although the roles involved may vary, experience shows that this indicator is useful. A mark of recognition, in the form of a membership of an editorial board (but not an advisory board) of a scientific/scholarly journal or publishing house, is based on status and reputation, and as such relatively easy to describe.
