-Supporting letter from your academic supervisor

Please note the following terms of membership on the SEB:

-There will be four positions on the SEB, a number which may be enlarged in the future.
-one-year term, which may be renewed by mutual agreement
-Minimum of one editorial review to be completed per year
-Members will be expected to provide feedback on the journal to the Editors/Publisher
-Feedback on reviews performed will be received from another ‘regular’ Editorial Board Member and from the Editor.
-SEB Members will be invited and expected to attend the Editorial Board Meeting if able.
