Editor succession models.
Part 2 - Experience of the SciELO Network Journals

How should the editor's succession of a journal be? This is a recurring question in many journals and/or maintainers, which often does not have a clear and explicit procedure in its regiment. The need to think about succession is a reality, the editor should not be perennial in office. There are many ways to do this replacement without the journal to be deviated from your mission or an interruption in your editorial process. In the first seminar of this subject, we saw the experience of journals/commercial publishers. In this second part of the discussion it is intended to show the regional experience of SciELO network editors and how they guide or conduct the process. Experienced SciELO Network editors will participate to address the theme.


This SciELO 25 Years Seminar, which is part of the activities celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the SciELO Program, will be held in collaboration with ABEC Brasil. The seminar “Editor succession models” is divided into two parts, which will address the important topic of editor succession, which although it should be a well-defined process, can often be a serious problem in the continuity of editorial policy and even survival. of the journal. Within the main theme, different approaches will be addressed. In the first webinar, speakers will share their personal experience and that of their journals, as well as how publishers guide the process. In the second webinar, different experiences of journals participating in the SciELO Network will be shared.

In the seminar, “Editor Succession Models. Part 1 – Experience of journals from commercial publishers”, the experiences of editors of journals maintained by publishers and how they guide or conduct the process were presented and discussed. We have Sigmar de Mello Rode, president of ABEC Brasil and member of the SciELO Brasil Advisory Committee, coordinating the presentations and the debate between Karunika Kardak, Publisher, Medicine and Life Sciences (Springer Nature); Taíssa Vila, editor-in-chief of The Lancet Regional Health – Americas (Elsevier/Lancet); Ricardo Antunes Azevedo, editor-in-chief of Annals of Applied Biology (Wiley) and Silvia Galleti, editor-in-chief of Arquivos do Instituto Biológico.

In the second part of the seminar, “Editor Succession Models. Part 2 – Experience of journals from the SciELO Network”, presentations and discussions will be coordinated by Silvia Galleti, who will have Sigmar de Mello Rode to provoke debate among the guests, Viviana Martinovich, editor of the journal Salud Colectiva; Luciana Dias de Lima, editor-in-chief of the journal Cadernos de Saúde Pública; Márkilla Zunete Beckmann Cavalcante, editor-in-chief of the journal Ornamental Horticulture and Fábio Frezatti, editor-in-chief of Revista de Contabilidade & Finanças.
