What is a journal advisory board?

A journal’s advisory board, also sometimes known as an editorial board or editorial review board, is a group of scholars selected by the journal editors to advise on editorial strategy, support the peer review process, and act as ambassadors for the journal. A strong advisory board helps bring prestige to a journal, and the expertise of its members spans the breadth of the journal’s subject area. They provide critical peer review services and encourage submissions throughout their professional network.
