Nordicom Review continues to develop
In November 2016, Nordicom Review’s new editorial board was completed. This is one of many steps taken during recent years to further develop the journal into one of a clear international standard.
With the new board, Nordicom Review is moving towards a more international profile. It includes an expansive range of competencies and experiences from all over the world.
Most members originate from the Nordic countries and are affiliated either to a Nordic university or a university abroad. Austria, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, France, South Africa and Indonesia are examples of countries represented on the board.
A member of the editorial board is expected to support the journal, help to develop it and to find reviewers in their specific research area when necessary. Editorial board members are invited to serve on the board for a period of four years.
Nordicom Review, which was launched in 1980, moved to peer-review in the 1990s and since then has seen several other changes:
- New aims and scope, as well as new guidelines and a new review form
- Online first has been introduced, in order to shorten the time between acceptance and publication
- An assistant editor has been appointed (Jonas Ohlsson, Nordicom, Sweden), as well as a senior advisory editor (Bob Franklin, UK)
- All articles undergo plagiarism checks before being sent out for review
- Last but not least, in November 2016 a new editorial board was completed
