eLife latest: 24 editors welcomed to the Board of Reviewing Editors

eLife is pleased to welcome new members to our Board of Reviewing Editors, including five recent early-career reviewers.

Since last September, scientists working across nine major areas of research have joined as members of the eLife Board of Reviewing Editors (BRE). Reviewing Editors are responsible for handling papers assigned to them by eLife Senior Editors (who are also working scientists), overseeing the online consultation among referees, and delivering clear, consolidated feedback to authors. Our new editors add expertise in Biochemistry, Biophysics and Structural Biology, Cancer Biology, Cell Biology, Developmental Biology and Stem Cells, Genes and Chromosomes, Human Biology and Medicine, Immunology, and Neuroscience.

For the first time, eLife’s new editors include members of our early-career reviewer pool, who have been recommended for a position on the editorial board due to their quality of feedback and reliability.

On joining the editorial board, Beate Lichtenberger (Medical University of Vienna, Austria), said she was

“delighted to join eLife’s Board of Reviewing Editors and to support transparency and collaboration in peer review.”

We’re also happy to welcome back Chris Ponting (University of Edinburgh and a founding member of our team of Senior Editors) and Dawn Teare (University of Sheffield), who have returned to the editorial board as BREs.

  • Christine Clayton, Zentrum für Molekulare Biologie der Universität Heidelberg (ZMBH), Germany, Epidemiology and Global Health, and Human Biology and Medicine
