Editorial Positions

Senior Editors

Senior Editors are responsible for selecting which papers to publish based on reports from Senior Associate Editors. After a paper is accepted, they work directly with authors to revise papers for publication. Each Senior Editor also mentors an Articles Editor, a Senior Associate Editor, and up to eight Associate Editors.

Articles Editors

Each Articles Editors runs a cell group, which includes up to eight Associate Editors. Articles Editors guide Associate Editors through the carriage process, leading discussions on each submitted paper. They ensure that all papers receive a thorough and fair review, which includes both defending papers that are poorly received and critiquing papers that are well received. After a cell group agrees to pass up a paper, the Articles Editor solicits and collates feedback from Associate Editors on how the paper may be improved, forwarding a carriage form to a Senior Associate Editor.

Senior Associate Editors

Senior Associate Editors are each paired with a cell group. For each paper passed up by their cell group, they ensure that the carriage form is complete, giving thorough consideration to all relevant factors. In particular, they check that every source used has been scrutinized and conduct in-depth research on more complex issues. When finished, they present the completed carriage form to their Senior Editor, and sometimes to the Senior Board as a whole.

Associate Editors

Associate Editors are first year and second year students. They are divided into cell groups and assigned submissions based on their interests. Each Associate Editor reads their assigned papers in depth, investigates the quality of their research, provides substantive comments on their suitability for publication, and votes on whether they should be passed up to the Senior Board.
