Role and Responsibilities

As a member of the Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine Editorial Board, you will play a critical role in maintaining and enhancing the journal’s quality and integrity. We work closely with our in-house staff, who oversee the submissions, peer review, and acceptance of papers, to ensure a smooth and efficient publication process.

This may also include helping to adjudicate articles in cases of contradictory reviewer recommendations, ensuring fairness and scholarly integrity in the publication process.
  • Manuscript submission: Editorial board members are encouraged to contribute to the journal’s content by providing one (1) manuscript submission per year. This can be your own original research, review articles, commentaries, or editorials. All submissions will undergo the standard peer review process, and acceptance is contingent upon the completion of any revisions requested by peer reviewers.
