JSST Editorial Board

 

EDITORIAL - May 2013

Recently the Board of the International Sol-Gel Society (ISGS) and the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Sol-Gel Science and Technology (JSST) have worked together to evaluate and to renew the members of the EDITORIAL BOARD of the journal. This decision was jointly made in order to ensure that the editorial board members not only maintain active research in the field of sol-gel science but also geographically represent the diverse origin of papers being submitted to JSST. The new and former JSST editorial board members have also accepted to be very active in their function by accepting to comply with the following requirements:

a) to be an ISGS member,

b) to publish at least one paper per year in JSST,

c) to accept reviewing at least 50% of the papers that they are invited to review every year.

We believe that the last two requirements, which will be evaluated as an average over 2 to 3 years, will help to maintain the journal at its highest scientific level.

As a result, the ISGS Board has reappointed 17 members and has elected 8 new ones. The ISGS Board and the JSST Editor-in-Chief would like to thank the members who have accepted to continue their involvement with JSST and we also would like to welcome the new ones. The JSST readers can find the complete list of the new JSST EDITORIAL BOARD on the back cover of the JSST printed issues.

Finally we would like to take this opportunity to thank the former members of the editorial board for their contribution over the years, the many reviewers who are of tremendous help for the papers selection process, the worldwide authors and most importantly, you, the readers.

Prof. Dr. Géraud Dubois, President of the ISGS
Prof. Dr. Michel A. Aegerter, JSST Editor-in-Chief
