Role of Editors and Editorial Board members

Role of editor-in-chief
The editor-in-chief (EIC) has the final responsibility to review and publish manuscripts in the journal independently, although he hears opinions of reviewers and editors. The EIC is the final decision maker on publishing and editorial policies and presides over the editorial board meeting. When any issue on the research and publication ethics occurs, the EIC presides over the ad hoc meeting for resolution of each issue and finally decides on the journal’s statement.

He recommends editorial board members to the President of the Korean Society of Anesthesiology including editors recommended by Eleven subsocieties of the Korean Society of Anesthesiologists: Korean Society of Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care, the Korean Society for Anesthetic Pharmacology, the Korean Society of Obstetric Anesthesiologists, the Korean Society of Pediatric Anesthesiologists, the Korean Neuromuscular Research Society, the Korean Society of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesiologists, the Korean Society of Transplantation Anesthesiologists, the Korean Spinal Pain Society, the Korean Society of Regional Anesthesia, the Korean Society for Airway Management, and the Korean Society of Geriatric Anesthesia and Pain.
