the Cognitive Behaviour Therapist
“We used Lindsay from The Editorial Hub to cover maternity leave and she was amazing from the start. She knew so much about the system that she picked things up and just did the role from day one. As well as ensuring we didn’t fall behind with basic day-to-day tasks, she was really helpful with some of the strategic changes and issues we were facing. Most importantly, she was a pleasure to work with!”

“Our special thanks to you for everything you did at such short notice, your responsiveness to each specific situation, regular contact with us and initiative throughout. You made a potentially tricky time so much smoother.”
Journal of Tropical Pediatrics
“The support I have from Sarah from The Editorial Hub Ltd in my role as an Associate Editor first, and subsequently as the Chief Editor, of the Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, has been invaluable. Her agility with all practical and logistical aspects of paper revision and editorial decisions has helped me navigate smoothly the roles at the journal. I can only thank her for being my best ally in this busy and cumbersome task!”

The Review of English Studies
“As editor of the major OUP literature journal The Review of English Studies, I’ve had the great pleasure of working with Penny from The Editorial Hub Ltd for many years now. She’s prompt, proactive, constantly alert and can-do: an unfailingly excellent source of administrative support, and I cannot imagine running the journal without her.”

Journal of Biological Education
“Karen from The Editorial Hub Ltd is fantastic. She is organised, efficient and hugely supportive, both to me as Editor in Chief, and to our Associate Editors. She doesn’t just move manuscripts through a workflow, she is an essential member of our team. Without her, keeping the journal functioning during the pandemic would have been incredibly difficult. Every journal needs a Karen!”

The working relationship between a journal’s Academic Editor(s) and its Managing Editor (ME) is often a very close one. We MEs do all the formatting checks on submissions, handle most enquiries, fix problems as and when they crop up on the submission system, and...
Peer Review as We Know It
The peer-review process is a funny old beast. It’s an imperfect system that varies from journal to journal and everyone has an opinion on the best way to manage it: the authors should/shouldn’t be anonymous, the reviewers should/shouldn’t be rewarded, there should be...
