Editorial Board updates for the journal "Risk Governance and Control"

Dear authors and subscribers,

Permanent development of the journal calls for regular revisions and improvements of its policies and procedures. In order to meet the expectations of various stakeholders we distinguished the roles and functions of the parties that participate in reviewing and editorial process for the Journal “Risk Governance and Control: Financial Markets and Institutions”.

We would like to remind you that the special issue of the journal (“Corporate Governance and Risk Management in Arab Countries”) was successfully published recently. Dmitriy Riabichenko (Sumy State University, Virtus Global Center for Corporate Governance, Ukraine) took a responsibility for preparation of this issue for publication. Given the successful experience, Dmitriy Riabichenko since August 2016 will perform as a co-editor of the journal.

Editors-in-Chief (Co-Editors) are responsible for the journal’s standing and position in the academic world, and for the overall scholarly quality of the journal. They determine the main editorial policies with guidance from the Editorial Board members as needed. Given the international scope and structure of the journal, one of the crucial goals of the Board, and especially of the Co-editors will be to generate interest amongst a variety of scholars from a variety of different locations. The journal policy is guided by two Editors-in-Chief because of the growing challenging issues related to the scope of the journal and its international scope.

Editorial Board is a team of experts in the journal’s field, who takes responsibility to review submitted manuscripts; advise on journal policy and scope; identify topics for special issues, which they may guest edit; attract new authors and submissions. Editorial Board members are selected by the journal’s co-editors. A journal’s Editorial Board can affect its quality, so co-editors consider the following: the location of board members should represent the reach of the journal; board members’ expertise should represent the journal’s scope; representatives should be appointed from key research institutes etc.

External reviewers collaborate with co-editors in soliciting, selecting, and developing outstanding content for the journal. External reviewers are responsible for the quality, consistency, and impact of our journals in the research community. This is achieved by selecting qualified, independent and experienced reviewers to review the submitted manuscripts, and by efficiently managing the peer-review process.
