We welcome expert researchers and academics to our journals’ editorial boards in an effort to help the journals stand out from the crowd. Editors play a crucial role in LAR journals, like other peer-reviewed journals, by guiding and leading the journals, and thereby ensuring the integrity of scholarly publication.

Interested academics and researchers are requested to contact the managing editors of respective journals to get involved with LAR editorial boards.

Contact information is available in the section Contact LAR Journals.
