The following people constitute the Editorial Board of Academic Editors for PeerJ. These active academics are the Editors who seek peer reviewers, evaluate their responses, and make editorial decisions on each submission to the journal. We will continue to add to the board of Academic Editors and are seeking qualified and diverse academics who share our vision.
Eva Jablonka has an M.Sc. in Microbiology from Ben-Gurion University, and a PhD in Genetics from the Hebrew University. Her post-Doctoral studies were in the Philosophy of Science, and in Developmental Genetics. She is a professor in the Cohn Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas, Tel-Aviv. Her main interest is the understanding of evolution that is driven by non-genetic hereditary variations and the evolution of nervous systems and consciousness.
Beth is a Professor of Psychology at the University of York, UK. Her research seeks to understand the neural basis of semantic cognition and language, and disorders affecting these aspects of cognition. She uses multiple neuroscientific methods, including neuropsychology, neuroimaging (MEG, fMRI) and brain stimulation to investigate how concepts are represented and flexibly retrieved.
Associated professor in college of medicine, Chung-Ang university.
The Director of the Integrated Plant Protection Center at Oregon State University and Professor in the Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology, State IPM Coordinator for Oregon and Associate Director of the Western IPM Center. Leads an international research and extension program in agriculture, leading to a sustainable intensification of production that contributes to food security.
Associate Professor of Animal Infectious Diseases,College of Veterinary Medicine, South China Agricultural University, China.Ph.D in Preventive Veterinary Medicine from Harbin Veterinary Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Agriculture Sciences. His research interests focus on the pathogenesis, molecular epidemiology and host innate immune responses of avian influenza viruses in mammal and poultry, and development of new vaccine and diagnostic methods for animal pathogens.
Principal investigator of several projects at international, national and regional level, and has participated in over 20 research projects as a partner. Currently co-director of two doctoral courses on the brain regions associated with memory storage and Alzheimer's disease. Research is focused on the molecular and cellular basis of synaptic plasticity processes in the Central Nervous System.
Professor of Fish Biology and Aquaculture. Authored and edited books on fish biology, physiology and nutrition, and aquaculture, and serving editorial board member for fisheries and aquaculture journals. Formerly, member of EUCost, ICES and academic society steering committees.
Research Associate in the Tertiary Oil Recovery Program, University of Kansas. Academic Editor for PLOS ONE and PeerJ. Member of the Society of Biology, Society of Petroleum Engineers and Society for General Microbiology.
I am a diving marine biologist with eclectic interests including crustacean biology and fisheries, fisheries management generally, krill swimming behaviour, cleaner fish, diver interactions with reefs and the eyes of shrimps. I work in the Centre for Environmental and Marine Sciences at the University of Hull. We have about 150 undergraduates and 12 or so postgraduate students. I am a member of the UK Scientific Diving Supervisory Committee.
Dr Blake W Johnson is Associate Professor of Cognitive Science and Director of Research in Hearing and Cognition at Macquarie University. Dr Johnson's research uses functional neuroimaging techniques, particularly magnetoencephalography (MEG) to investigate the neural bases of cognition and its disorders. His current work examines auditory and cognitive brain function in children using a novel paediatric MEG instrument customised to fit the smaller heads of preschool-aged children.
Dave Johnston is a biological oceanographer and marine conservation ecologist whose research focuses on the habitat needs of marine vertebrates in relation to pressing conservation issues.
Research Director of Electron Microscopy Unit and Group leader of Morphological determinants of the endoplasmic reticulum –group within the Program in Cell and Molecular Biology, Institute of Biotechnology, University of Helsinki. Chair of EM Consortium, National Imaging Infrastructure Network, Biocenter Finland Technology Platform.
