As an EiC for an ISI journal, your principal role is as a mentor to the editors, the authors, and the reviewers; that is, you are a key person in carrying out the mentoring that makes ISI one of the most constructive forces in higher education.

Your crucial role is that of an agent for improving research and researchers. While other journals ask only for gatekeepers, your role is as a guide. In ISI, we all help each other. Reviewers mentor authors, editors mentor reviewers and authors, and editors-in-chief mentor their editors.

This document is organized first to give you a quick view of your role and then to provide details on how to do the tasks of an EiC.

If you have questions about how to use the system not covered here, ask the Managing Editor.
