PeerJ Sections: New layout for community interaction and editorial curation
What are PeerJ Sections?
To encourage more community interaction through our journal platform and to help our readers find papers of most relevance to their research interests, PeerJ, the journal, is now divided into separate Sections by field.
Each Section is headed by our newly appointed Section Editors, experienced Academic Editors who now lead on the editorial oversight and community curation of their Section. More on our Section Editors can be found here.
Within each Section, there is now more featured comment and discussion about our individual research papers. Academic Editors will be regularly identifying and highlighting the most important new PeerJ publications in their field.
At PeerJ we are always looking to share more about the process and decision-making behind the published science. You will find expert commentary from our team of Academic Editors and you can follow the links to the peer review history of the article.
In addition to the curation aspects of our Sections, Section Editors have oversight of their section to ensure the journal maintains a fair peer review process and the highest standards of scientific practice in their fields.
Ultimately, we see the introduction of PeerJ Sections as an editorial reboot of our innovative megajournal – encouraging wider community interaction whilst also supporting our rigorous editorial standards.
