Approved October 19, 2003
The high quality associated with TODS is due to the superb papers published by that journal. But those papers are the result of high quality submissions, which are the result of the authors' perception of the quality of the Editorial Board, and the result of a rigorous reviewing process, which is again principally dependent on the quality of the Editorial Board. The future of the journal rests on the selection of Associate Editors.
Prospective Associate Editors must meet the following qualifications.
(As of summer, 2003, 754 people had co-authored a TODS paper. 205 people had co-authored at least two such papers; almost 100 had co-authored three or more.)
The Editor-in-Chief appoints Associate Editors. Upon invitation, the prospect will be asked to review the policies then in effect and to explicitly agree to effectively implement those policies.
Amended September 24, 2004
Associate Editors are appointed to an initial three-year term, with the possibility of being reappointed to a second, final three-year term, in order to bring new people into the EB, avoid exploiting busy professionals, and spread the work across the community.
