The FEBS Journal: Editor Profiles

As a non-profit society journal dedicated to the publication of high-quality research papers and review articles, our academic Editorial Board and Editorial Advisory Board are at the heart of everything we do at The FEBS Journal. Our dedicated academic experts assess manuscripts that cover all fields of cell and molecular biology; their long-standing expertise and knowledge in their respective fields allows for an informed, thorough and rapid assessment of a manuscript's merits. Furthermore, their comprehensive research community networks enable our Editorial Board Members to invite expert referees for the best-possible peer review process of selected manuscripts. In constant exchange with our Editor-in-Chief Seamus Martin, our Board Members help shaping, guiding and leading the scientific and editorial output of The FEBS Journal and serve as advocates and amplifiers of the most recent, innovative research from biochemistry and enzymology to structural and cell biology.
