Associate Editors manage the peer-review process by assigning papers (maximum of one new manuscript per month) to reviewers, synthesizing reviews received, and making recommendations to the Senior Editors or Editor-in-Chief. They also serve as ambassadors for the AOS journals and encourage manuscript submissions from authors. Editorial board members serve 3-year terms.
Qualifications: a doctoral degree or equivalent research experience; evidence of an active and relevant publication record for current career stage; and experience with peer review. Previous service on a journal editorial board is not required.
