The JSE editorial board consists of the editor-in-chief; the editors; technical editors; associate editors and the managing editor.

Peer-Review Process

JSE is intended to provide rapid publication of new developments in the field of Environmental Soil Science as well as review articles. Manuscripts may be volunteered, invited, or coordinated as a special section or symposium.JSE is an international, peer-reviewed journal, which publishes original research contributions to scientific knowledge. All manuscript submissions are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees. The decision on a manuscript will be made within a few weeks and the accepted manuscripts are generally published online within two weeks. All peer review is double blind and submission is online via the JSE website.
