Encyclopedia

(Redirected to Editor in chief article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An editor in chief (also called editor-in-chief and executive editor) is a publication's primary editor, having final responsibility for the operations and policies.[1][2] The term is generally applied to newspapers, magazines, yearbooks, and television news programs. The term is also applied to academic journals, where the editor in chief ultimately decides whether a submitted manuscript will be published in the journal as an article. This decision is made by the editor in chief after seeking input from reviewers, who are typically chosen by the editor in chief based on their expertise.

Occasionally, an EiC may also act as an editor/reporter. Chaudhry Ahsan Premee from the Associated Press Service (APS) in Pakistan is one example of such an individual.
