The role of the editorial board is to advise and support the editor and contributors.

Editorial Board

    Aside from providing prestige, the role of the editorial board is to advise and support the authors, giving feedback on the papers and making suggestions. Editorial boards provide opinions and encourage authors to submit their best work.



    First, submissions are reviewed by an editorial board to confirm that each project is in accordance with the philosophy of YEGI. The approved papers are then further evaluated for their levels of sophistication in content; this phase of review ensures the fair assessment of all papers. Peer reviewers provide the Editor-in-Chief with recommendations regarding the suitability of the documents for publication; they score the quality of each manuscript on a scale of 1-10.

    • Ensure the selected projects are appropriate for the categories
    • Make unbiased decisions and honest reporting/grading
    • Organize a peer review team
    • Adopt reasonable editorial policies
    • Maintain clear communication with reviewers
