The structure of our editorial office of the Journal mirrors that of many other academic journals including a managing editor, editorial associates, software specialist and administrative coordinators. The tasks performed in the editorial office include, but are not limited to:
1.Management of the peer review process – ensure manuscripts progress smoothly through peer review; reviewers have all the information they need; authors receive a review that improves the quality of their manuscript

The roles and responsibilities of editorial offices are evolving rapidly, in response to the trend of online-based work flows.
