Editorial Board


We have designed the journal to have disciplinary breadth, scientific rigor, and open communication across all of the aquatic sciences. We strive to maintain a diverse editorial board across many dimensions that is made up of the world’s leading aquatic scientists at all career levels. Below is the board structure and the current editorial board members.

The editorial team will be guided by the following guiding principles: to maintain high scientific and journal standards and implement rigorous and fair peer review based on a foundation of scientific integrity; to foster effective, inclusive, and productive working relationships through active communication and transparent operations; to strive to represent the full aquatic science community in an unbiased way related to topics published and board representation; and to foster open science by making research products accessible including text, data and code. In addition, the editorial team will strive to conduct all activities as quickly as possible to ensure timely review and publication, without sacrificing the above guiding principles.
