The Role of the Editor in Chief
The editor in chief is responsible for editorial decision-making on papers submitted to the journal. The editor in chief is also responsible for editorial matters that include but are not limited to journal supplements, the journal's aims and scope, the editorial board and volunteer peer reviewer pool, editorial assessment of video abstracts, assignment to published papers of endorsements, and for consulting on pre-submission inquiries from authors.
In my experience Reproductive Biology Insights is a model for author-friendly open access journals, combining rigorous peer review with efficient speedy processing. It has been a pleasure--and no pain--working with such a good editorial and production team.
