I told my colleagues that PeerJ is a journal where they need to publish if they want their paper to be published quickly and with the strict peer review expected from a good journal.

Christine L Borgman

Christine L. Borgman, Professor & Presidential Chair in Information Studies at UCLA, is the author Big Data, Little Data, No Data ( 2015), Scholarship in the Digital Age (2007) and From Gutenberg to the Global Information Infrastructure (2000), and about 200 other publications in information studies, computer science, and communication. She is a Fellow of the ACM and of AAAS; and a member of the Board of Directors of the Electronic Privacy Information Center.

John M. Carroll

John M. Carroll researches methods and theory in HCI, particularly as applied to internet tools for collaborative learning and problem solving, and design of interactive systems. He received the Rigo Award and CHI Lifetime Achievement Award from ACM, and the Goldsmith Award from IEEE. He is a fellow of AAAS, ACM, IEEE, the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, and the Association for Psychological Science, and received an honorary doctorate in engineering from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid.

Mark John Costello

B.Sc. (NUI Galway); Ph.D. 1987 (NUI Cork). Involved in World Register of Marine Species, International Association for Biological Oceanography, Global Biodiversity Information Facility, Ocean Biogeographic Information System, Group on Earth Observations Biodiversity Observation Network, Species 2000.

Diann S Eley

Associate Professor Diann (Di) Eley is the Director of MD Research in the Faculty of Medicine at The University of Queensland (UQ). Di chairs the Student Research Committee, the Faculty Low Negligible Risk Ethics Committee, and is deputy chair of the UQ Human Research Ethics Committee. Di’s research career began with an MSc in reproductive physiology at the University of Florida. She subsequently worked for nearly 20 years as a bench scientist in Kenya and the UK. In 2000, she began her academic career after receiving a PhD in health and exercise psychology at the University of Bristol. She moved to the School of Medicine at The University of Queensland in late 2003.
The primary focus of Di’s research is medical education, research training and rural health workforce. Her specific area of research interest deals with personality and behaviour around student well-being and career choice. Di has over 120 peer-reviewed publications, and over 20 externally funded research projects in medical education and rural workforce. She leads the medical student research program at UQ and is responsible for the development and implementation of the Clinician Scientist Track, which encourages student interest and experience in research, and facilitates medical students undertaking a research higher degree alongside their medical degree.

Kirsten O. Kyvik

Head of Institute of Regional Health Research and Professor, OPEN, Odense University Hospital, Denmark.

Christopher J Lortie

I am an integrative scientist with expertise in community theory, sociology, and quantitative methods. Collaboration and building networks allows me to do the broadest possible research both conceptually and internationally. As such, my empirical research involves biogeographical comparisons of all community dynamics with particular emphasis on academia. I am creative and love to apply my skills to new challenges.

Ana Marusic

Ana Marušić is Professor of Anatomy and Chair of the Department of Research in Biomedicine and Health at the University of Split School of Medicine, Split, Croatia. Professor Marušić is the founder of the Croatian branch of the Cochrane Collaboration. She is on the Steering Group of the EQUATOR Network, an international initiative for promoting transparent and accurate reporting of health research. She is the editor in chief of the Journal of Global Health.

Professor Marušić teaches gross anatomy but also the principles of research methodology and scientific communication. Her biomedical research is focused on the interactions between the immune and bone systems. Her research interests also include peer review and research integrity. She is the principal investigator of several national and international research grants.

Corey Nislow

Corey Nislow's laboratory develops and uses cutting edge tools to address this central question: how can we understand the biological commonalities in all of the life sciences; from embryonic development, to the spread of infectious diseases to better ways to treat cancer. Each of these disciplines can be explained in the context of competition, interaction and evolution. His lab studies the interface between genes and the environment using parallel genome-wide screens, high throughput cell-based assays and next generation sequencing. Most recently, he and his scientific partner, Dr. Guri Giaever, are exploring how laboratory experiments can co-opt evolutionary processes to understand drug action. He enjoys teaching all aspects of biotechnology, genomics and drug discovery. He got his PhD from the University of Colorado, worked at several Biotechnology companies and was at Stanford and University of Toronto before joining UBC in 2013. He has published 161 papers and run 19 marathons.

Steven J Thompson

Former faculty at Johns Hopkins University and Dartmouth College. My research expertise is in Internet phenomena: access, addiction, agency, control, dependency, governance, and policy; and engineering ethics in Science, Technology, and Society (STS) merging the Internet with physical bodies. My edited reference book, Androids, Cyborgs, and Robots in Contemporary Culture and Society, was published in 2017, and my edited reference book, Global Issues and Ethical Considerations in Human Enhancement Technologies, was published in 2014. I am on the Membership Committee of the Global Internet Governance Academic Network (GigaNet). I teach communication courses, including Media and Society, and Mass Media Law.

Julita Vassileva

Professor in Computer Science, University of Saskatchewan, Canada. Her research area is human issues in decentralized computing technologies and applications: user modeling, personalization, trust modeling, intelligent educational and persuasive technologies.

Jennifer K. Wagner

Jennifer K. Wagner earned her JD from the University of North Carolina and her PhD in Anthropology from Penn State University. She completed post-doctoral research appointments at Duke University's Institute for Genome Sciences & Policy and the University of Pennsylvania's Center for the Integration of Genetic Healthcare Technologies. She served as the 2014-2015 AAAS Science & Engineering Congressional Fellow. In addition to her research, she has been a licensed, practicing attorney in PA since 2007.
