The editorial board is responsible for handling the processing of submissions to regular issues. This board includes:
- Editor-in-Chief (EIC). EIC is responsible for assigning associate editors as well as coordinating the editorial activities to make final decisions regarding the suitability of manuscripts for publication in the journal and communicating this decision to the author(s). EIC's term is for three years, renewable by request from the SCS Vice-President for Publications.
- Special Issues Editor (SIE). The role of the SIE includes working with the board to make suggestions for special issue topics and their potential contents, identifying critical topics in which to create special issues, and mentor guest editors throughout the peer review process
- Associate Editors. Each associate editor is responsible for collecting reviews for submissions, and providing a recommendation to the EIC based on these reviews. Associate editors are encouraged to promote the journal, e.g., by proposing and supporting the development of special issues. An associate editor's term will last for two years, but he/she may be invited by the EIC to continue in this position for one or more additional terms.
- Editorial Advisory Board. The advisory committee provides general advice and feedback to those responsible for the operation of the journal, especially the EIC and SCS Vice-President for Publications. The purpose of this committee is to provide a means for key individuals in the journal's operation to obtain expert advice from leaders in the M&S community concerning strategic directions and policies implemented by the journal.
In general, it is expected that some members of the editorial board will rotate out and new members will rotate onto the editorial board when board memberships are renewed.
Special issues are handled by guest editor(s) in consultation with the SIE. Details of the review process will vary according to the context of the special issue, but will adhere to the general principles used in regular issues to ensure high quality through the peer review of submissions. Final approval concerning publication of all manuscripts must be granted by the EIC.
