The editor-in-chief is responsible for organising the work of the editors and takes full responsibility for the quality of the final publication. The editor-in-chief is appointed by the Managing Director of the Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies (VWI).

The editors assist the editor-in-chief in selecting the reviewers and organising the review process. They correspond with authors and reviewers, supervise reviews, and make recommendations to the editor-in-chief. Editors are nominated by the editor-in-chief.

International Academic Advisory Board
The editorial board is an international body of acknowledged scholars, which represents the journal in the academic community. The board interacts with editorial policy by drawing the editors’ attention to new research questions and results, by introducing new authors, and with general support of the review process.

Reviewers must treat papers submitted for their consideration as confidential information and knowledge gained from reviewing submissions may not be used for their personal gain. They should assess the quality of the manuscript objectively, following the standards of the given discipline. Reviewers are expected to give their assessment of the submission in writing. Reviewers are encouraged to report any suspicion of questionable research and writing practices to the editors. To maintain the objectivity of the review process, reviewers must declare any potential conflict of interest.

It is the authors’ responsibility to submit manuscripts that fully comply with the standards of academic (preferably British) English or German and the style manual applied by the journal. Authors must declare that their manuscript is an original work, which is not being considered for publication in other academic journals and books. In the case of co-authorship, the corresponding author must confirm that the publication of the manuscript is approved by all authors. If relevant, authors are asked to indicate research funding.
