These journals publish top-quality work applicable to researchers and practitioners in the field.

Prominent scholars hold Co-Editor and Associate Editor positions and participate in the journals’ Editorial Review Boards. These leaders review all submissions, work with authors to improve their papers, and make the final decisions to accept or reject the work.
