The members of the Editorial Committee meet regularly to discuss the papers submitted to dialectica, to choose referees, read the referee reports and decide on whether papers are (i) rejected, (ii) rejected with the possibility of resubmission, (iii) conditionally accepted or (iv) accepted. They are expected to read 5-6 articles per week, and are members of the Editorial Board. They also decide on the publishing schedule and on the annual dialectica prize and may commission special issue, delegating their editorial responsibility to one or several guest editors.
The members of the Editorial Board own the journal and represent it in legal and any other matters. They are willing to referee approx. 5 articles per year (at least). They meet at least once a year to discuss any matters related to the journal and receive the journal for free.
Amongst themselves, the members of the editorial board elect an editor, to whom they delegate the scientific responsibility for the journal, a managing editor, to whom they delegate their administrative responsibility for the journal and who is in charge of the day-to-day functioning of the journal and a reviews editor, who is charge of commissioning, evaluating and editing book reviews.
The managing editor is appointed by the editorial board and acts as its representative in administrative matters. On behalf of the editor, the managing editor is in charge of dialectica's finances, presents an annual financial report to the Editorial Board and stays in contact with the authors and the publisher.
Members of the honorary board are rewarded for their services to dialectica. They are invited to the meetings of the editorial board where their vote has consultative force. They receive the journal for free, but are not expected to write referee reports.
Members of the consulting board support the journal and are willing to referee approx. 3 articles per year. They are invited to the meetings of the editorial board where their vote has consultative force.
We are extremely grateful to our referees who are doing excellent work on a completely voluntary basis. Without them, our journal would not exist.
