Four new editors are joining the Editorial Board of TIS, your open-access peer-reviewed academic journal.

Following publication of the first three issues of TIS, the Editorial Board—Shelby Shapiro (General Editor), Amanda Haste (Humanities Editor) and Joan Cunningham (STEM Editor)—sought additional editors to expand the range of academic specialties serving the journal to accommoodate the diverse and increasing journal submissions.

The following four scholars accepted invitations to join the Editorial Board:

She has served on the Editorial Board of Mediation Quarterly from 1996 to 2001, as well as on the Editorial Board of Conflict Resolution Quarterly from 2007 to 2009, and as guest editor for a special issue of Mediation Quarterly.

TIS uses a double-blind peer review process, with each manuscript submitted to at least two, and often three, peer reviews. Editors’ duties involve assigning reviewers for each paper submitted within their own specialism, following up on peer reviews, assembling them for the author’s revisions, and repeating the process once revised, until the reviewers and editors are satisfied that the paper is in its best possible form and fit for publication in TIS.
