Editorial Board

Equity, diversity, and inclusion are core to the journal’s mission. This is intentional at every level of the journal, from its leadership, to Section Editors and the Editorial Board, to the authors and communities it serves.

We deliberately and actively recruit a diverse pool of experts from all geographies and identities and make an intentional effort to ensure representation from historically underrepresented and excluded groups.
