1. Governance of the Peer Community Journal

1.1 Organisation

The Peer Community Journal is endowed with:


1.2 Executive Board

The executive board:

  • is legally responsible for the publication of articles
  • manages the logistics, funding, administrative aspects and promotion of the journal
  • checks all articles before publication and verifies that articles have the right structure, that data scripts and codes are available, that funding and conflicts of interest are properly disclosed, and that articles have the right format
  • when it has knowledge of potential misconduct regarding a paper published in Peer Community Journal, the executive board will ask an ad hoc committee of editors to investigate the case. The ad hoc committee will advise the executive board, and based on COPE's recommendations, the executive board will make a decision on what action to take..

Its members are the members of the board of the PCI association:

  • Denis Bourguet (INRAE Montpellier, France), denis.bourguet(@)inrae.fr - ORCID
  • Benoit Facon (INRAE La Réunion, France), benoit.facon(@)inrae.fr - ORCID
  • Thomas Guillemaud (INRAE Sophia Antipolis, France), thomas.guillemaud(@)inrae.fr - ORCID

1.3 Managing Co-ordinator

The managing co-ordinator is responsible for controlling the workflow for article publication.
