Q Dear Maxine,
When we want to submit our article online, can we choose the editor ourselves? Our paper is in the field of biomedical sciences.
A Dear Professor
Thank you for your kind message. No, it is not possible for you to choose your editor yourself when you submit a manuscript, but there is a space on the submission form for you to ask for a particular editor to see your manuscript when the journal receives it. Hence, even if the manuscript is not assigned to the editor you request, that editor will be alerted to it and will be able to read and comment on it.
