Editorial board and editors

 

The editorial board acts as an advisory board for the MikaEL journal. The journal editors may consult the editorial board in matters concerning the scientific quality of the manuscripts and the overall principles and guidelines of the journal. Members of the editorial board may also be approached for suggestions about peer reviewers, and they can be requested to act as peer reviewers for manuscripts submitted for publication in MikaEL.

Inquiries about the publication should be primarily addressed to the editors, not the editorial board.

Editors

MikaEL journal editors read all the manuscripts submitted to MikaEL for publication and decide which manuscripts are of sufficient quality to be sent out for peer review. The editors will also 

  1. ensure that each manuscript is assessed by two peer reviewers;
  2. forward the reviewers’ comments to the authors;
  3. re-read the manuscripts revised on the basis of the reviewers’ feedback and request the authors to make further revisions when necessary;
  4. finalise the layout of the articles and send a publication agreement to each author for his/her signature;
  5. write an introductory Note from the Editors for each volume. 

As far as non-peer reviewed reports and discussion articles are concerned, the editors decide whether the manuscript can be published and provide feedback and suggestions about revision to the authors. After this, the editing proceeds as described above in connection with peer-reviewed articles (bullet points 3 to 5). 

No translation or language revision service is provided by the journal, and authors are solely responsible for the language of their articles.
