Associate Editors

Associate Editors oversee peer review of manuscripts in their area of expertise. They evaluate them initially for soundness and suitability, then nominate confidential peer reviewers. Later they review all recommendations, set final requirements and finally evaluate author revisions. They carry out these tasks using an on-line peer review management system which has automatic features to ease and streamline the process.

California Agriculture Associate Editors (AEs) are expected to represent the journal on the campuses and in the county UCCE offices and the research and extension centers. The panel membership includes campus agricultural experiment station faculty, UCCE specialists from the campuses, and UCCE advisors from the counties. Its membership is geographically diverse as well. In a similar vein, AEs are encouraged to appoint reviewers from outside the UC system when appropriate, and to appoint reviewers from multiple disciplines, as needed.
