JCOM announcing new Editorial Board


Over the past few years, the JCOM community has grown. This brings with it more readers and also an increased number of submissions of good quality papers, as evidenced in Lars Guenther and Marina Joubert’s paper published this month. We have also been fortunate to host two Special Issues – one on Citizen Science and one forthcoming shortly on the History of science communication.

Given the growth in the journal submissions and readership, we felt it was time to look again at the editorial structure with a view to strengthening the journal further. We are delighted to announce the creation of a small Editorial Board that will focus on ensuring the quality and rigour of the studies published in JCOM as well as considering how the journal can support the diverse community of readers and contributors.

The Editorial Board will continue to be supported by the larger Editorial Advisory Board whose members facilitate peer review, help to maintain the quality standards, contribute to the diverse contents of the journal and promote JCOM within their academic and practice communities.

Please join us in welcoming the new Editorial Board members:

  • Paola RodariSissa Medialab, Italy
