Editorial Boards Benefit from Virtual Meetings
Employ interactive features to drive engagement
Over the last 10 months or so, journal editorial offices have hosted thousands of editorial board meetings in a virtual environment.
Different journals have different ways of managing editorial boards, with some meeting quite frequently via conference call (or now video) to discuss the day-to-day operations. It is typical, however, to have one or two in-person meetings a year to discuss strategy and trends in a more in-depth way. Many of these meetings for society journals might happen alongside a conference or annual meeting. With these in-person events going virtual, editorial board meetings are moving to video conferencing, as well.
Planning these meetings falls to the editorial staff and it is not an easy feat. Editorial board meetings or annual editor workshops are treated as the most important meeting of the year for many staff and as such, lots of agenda development, coordination of logistics and reporting goes into the meetings.
