The IEC members are expected to: 1) review articles at the request of journal editors; 2) provide second opinions on articles; 3) help identify suitable reviewers; 4) possibly oversee the review process for several articles in a particular stream–choosing reviewers; and 5) contributing to the final publication decision. Thus, the role of IEC members is to advise and support the journal editors, who have responsibility for the content of the journal.
