Confidentiality in Selecting Editors and Editorial Board Members 

Ethical and Legal Considerations

Annette Flanagin

When editors or editorial board members are interviewed and evaluated for a prospective position with a journal, all participants in the selection process should be reminded that all discussions should remain confidential. In some cases, a signed statement of confidentiality may be requested of members of search/interview committees. Without assurance of such confidentiality, professional reputations and the journal’s relationship with influential academic and political leaders may be jeopardized (see , Editorial Responsibilities, Roles, Procedures, and Policies, Role of the Editorial Board).
