Abstract
Most journals have editorial boards. Their composition, what the individual members do, and how they operate will vary, but they are generally recogni zed as having certain central roles. What makes a good editor? How can pote ntial editors be identified and then persuaded to join an editorial board? Once on the board, what can be done to keep them happy, committed, and work ing productively for the journal? What sorts of problems can arise, and how can they be avoided? These are some of the questions dealt with in this ar ticle.
