Role of Editors and Editorial Board Members

The editor-in-chief (EIC) has a final responsibility to publish manuscripts after review in the journal independently although she hears opinions of reviewers and editors. The EIC is the final decision maker on publishing and editorial policies and presides the editorial board meeting. When any issue on the publication ethics occurs, the EIC presides the ad hoc meeting for resolution of each issue and finally decides on the journal’s statement. He recommends editorial board members to the President of the Korean Urological Oncology Society. He attends the executive board meeting of the Society to explain the journal’s status and budget.

Deputy editor: The role of the Deputy Editor is to assist the EIC in the practical aspects of editing and publishing each issue of JUO. For each article, the Deputy Editor revises and aligns the content with the direction of JUO.

Associate editor: Associate editors help the EIC by screening the submitted manuscript for compatibility with the journal’s aims and scope, whether it is described according to the journal’s style and format, and check for plagiarism using Similarity Check (iThenticate). They also participate in selecting reviewers for each manuscript. The associate editors meet with the EIC regularly to discuss the review results and decide on the acceptance of manuscripts.

Role of editorial board members: Editorial board members meet regularly to discuss the editorial policy and propose changes for improvement. They frequently participate in the review of manuscripts and may recommend new reviewers. They may write an Editorial or Issues and Perspectives manuscript. They ask colleagues to submit a manuscript to the journal and may recommend potential authors for commissioned articles. International advisory board members advise the EIC for journal promotion and writing Issues and Perspectives manuscripts. They recruit submissions from outside of Korea. Their experience in journal editing is shared with the editorial board.

Ethics editor: The Ethics editor provides consultation and the resolution process on publication ethics issues upon referral from the EIC. The Ethics editor also provides lectures on research and publication ethics issues to reviewers and editorial board members as part of regular education sessions sponsored by the journal.

Statistical Editor: The Statistical editors thoroughly review the statistics used in the manuscripts for appropriateness and logical interpretation. If any flaws are found, they will be reported to the EIC or Associate editors and shared with the authors for improvement.

English editor: The English editor proofreads all manuscripts for the abstract and English summaries and full manuscripts for English articles. Suggestions for better flow and logical thought processes are provided.

Manuscript editor: The editor checks the style and format of all manuscripts according to the journal’s guidelines.

Layout editor: The Layout editor produces the PDF file according to the journal’s format.

Website and JATS XML file producer: Production of JATS XML files based on the journal’s DTD is done, and content is uploaded to the journal homepage.
