Our history and structure

Our structure

We have a talented team of editors, led by our editor-in-chief, who manage the process of receiving, reviewing, accepting, and editing article submissions. We have an active editorial board, led by our board chair, that takes on a variety of tasks to support the continued success of Weave, including updating our online presence, fundraising, and improving journal workflows. Meet our editorial team.

Since 2019, we also have an advisory group provides Weave leadership with feedback and helps us shape the future structure and direction of the journal. The role of advisors continues to evolve.
