Dr. Carrick has served on the Editorial Board for this regional, international journal for the past 3 years (13 year total). His duties include, overseeing the peer review of approximately 10 manuscripts per year. Again, this involved reading each manuscript, contacting and securing external reviewers to evaluate the papers (usually three experts in the field). Once the manuscripts are reviewed, he read the reviews and the revised paper to make sure the paper addressed all criticisms. Lastly, he was responsible for communicating (in writing) with the author and editor regarding his final decision about whether papers were suitable for publication.
Dr. Carrick reviewed 10 papers this year for the journal.
