Scientific Advisors

IntechOpen's Scientific Advisors support the book publishing team with editorial and scientific input as and when the publisher requests it. The board consists of external collaborators who agree to assist the publisher independently and on a voluntary basis (with tasks such as: advising the publisher on new topics within their field, proposing potential expert collaborators, reviewing book publishing proposals if required, etc). Board members are experts who cover the major STM fields. They are all trusted IntechOpen collaborators and Academic Editors, who wish to ensure that the requirements and needs of the scientific community are met via publisher's endeavors, as well as support the Open Access publishing model.
