Editors and Boards


Last Update:   04-20-2020

Staff Editors

  • Kowsar, as an STM publisher, makes a contract for providing publishing services to academic universities and institutions as the journal owners. All editors of journals are introduced by the journal owners and will be re-evaluated at the first of each contract and annually by the governing board of Kowsar to be matched within the editorial board criterias of independence and responsibilities. Therefore, staff editors are completely independent of the publisher.
  • The Kowsar editors are paid a fixed salary by the journal owners and their payments are not linked to the number of papers published in the journal. Editors are required to declare all relevant conflicts of interest and do not participate in the review of any paper for which they have a competing interest. The editor-in-chief is responsible for the scientific context of all published materials in the journal. The conflict of interests statements is declared below each staff editor and shows their relationship to activities over the previous 12 months since the last update. However, relevant competing interests from previous years will also be taken into account when deciding whether it is appropriate for an editor to handle a paper.
