Editorial Team

The Editorial Team is responsible for the continued production and high standard of the Journal of Zoo and Aquarium Research. The Managing Editor supervises the day-to-day operations of JZAR, and guides the review process and the editing and production of every issue. The Technical Support Contact assists editors, authors and reviewers with any problems they have submitting, editing, reviewing or publishing material. Section Editors provide advice on, and assist the Managing Editor with processing submitted manuscripts. The Editorial Board and its Chair are ultimately responsible for the final product; they set the editorial direction and policies for the publication, and make sure every issue is consistent on these measures.
