Board Requirements

The editorial board of Human Technology plays a crucial role in the ongoing development of this journal. They support Human Technology in three key areas.

  1. The editorial board members serve as ambassadors for Human Technology by
    1. introducing the journal to colleagues and students, and at conferences, both as a publication outlet for quality research and as an additional resource during literature reviews; and
    2. informing colleagues preparing grant applications in the many areas of human technology research that Human Technology can partner with them as an open access dissemination outlet for the research generated within the research project.
  2. Board members support the ongoing quality of the journal by
    1. identifying potential guest editors and topics suitable for thematic issues in Human Technology;
    2. surfacing qualified individuals to serve as reviewers from within their knowledge of their field; and
    3. assisting the editor in chief, as requested, in evaluating the readiness for peer review of a manuscript within their area of expertise.
  3. Open Access journals serve an essential role in the academic research world. Board members engage the academic community regarding the value of and need for such journals, as well for small-but-growing journals, such as Human Technology, which contribute significantly to the research corpora in the many fields investigating human–technology interaction.
