Constituting Meeting of the Editorial Board
Posted by Michaela Leštáková on 2021-12-06
On the 25th of November 2021, the Editorial Board of ing.grid met for the first time to discuss the current state and next steps in the development of the journal.
Nearly all members of the Editorial Board, currently consisting of 24 academics from across the world, attended the virtual conference in which they had an opportunity to get to know one another and divide responsibilities with regard to the upcoming tasks leading up to the first issue of ing.grid. During the intense three hours and despite the meeting spanning across four different time zones, the Editorial Board lead fruitful discussions concerning the current state and the next steps of ing.grid.
The core topics of the discussions were review criteria (how ing.grid approaches reviewing manuscripts, data and software), issue planning (how often issues are released and what their structure is) and marketing (how we assure that ing.grid reaches the desired authors, readers and reviewers). The results of the discussions have been documented and will be implemented in the upcoming weeks before the first call for papers is published.
Below, you will find an impression from the virtual conference - the picture was taken towards the end of the conference when some of the editors had already left. Nevertheless, we are sure there will be plenty of Editorial Board meetings in the future in which you can see the Board in its entirety!
