The role of the Editorial Board is to manage the production and development of the Association’s journal Educational Psychology in Practice and to assist the Editor by acting as anonymous referees in respect of submitted papers.

As part of their duties Ordinary Members of the Editorial Board are expected to read and offer a written critique of articles submitted for publication.  A Board member will, on average, referee between 14 and 16 new articles per year, and critique amendments of previously submitted articles, with an expectation that a review of an article will be returned to the editor within two months. Articles are refereed anonymously, using as a basis the guidance to authors and a structured feedback form. A moderation exercise is carried out at most Board meetings. Final decisions concerning publication rest with the Editor, but a high premium is placed on collaborative working.

 The Editorial Board comprises:

·        The Editor

·        The Review Editor

·        Six Ordinary Members

·        Representatives of the National Executive Committee

The Board normally meets three times a year, usually either in London or in Durham.  Board members are expected to attend all meetings if possible.  Travel and subsistence expenses will be reimbursed on the terms set out in the Members’ Handbook.

Due to the circumstances arising from the Covid-19 restrictions, exceptionally all nominations must be submitted by email.  Members wishing to stand for election should notify their intention to the Association Secretary by the closing date of 2nd July 2020 at:  aepelections@aep.org.uk.
