Editorial Team

BEC editors

Editor-in-chief: Gnaiger Erich
Co-editor-in-chief: Cardoso Luiza HD
Managing editor: Tindle-Solomon Lisa
Managing co-editor: Beno Marija
Graphics editor: Cocco Paolo

The editor-in-chief, assisted by the co-editor-in-chief, directs the overall strategy of the journal and acts as an ambassador for the journal. The managing editors coordinate the workflow between editors, reviewers and authors.

Executive editors

The executive editors collaborate with the editor-in-chief and co-editor-in-chief to effectively direct the overall strategy of the journal as the executive team. Major decisions for the journal are taken by the executive team. Executive editors are consulted by the editor when major decisions must be taken. In collaboration with the associate editors, they are involved as manuscript editors. Number of editorial assignments indicated in brackets.

Assistant editors

Early Career Investigators are invited by BEC Associate editors to join as 'Assistant editors' as part of the MitoEAGLE mentoring concept. The executive and associate editors are responsible for involving the invited assistant editors in the editorial activities. The assistant editors collaborate with their mentors as reviewers.
