In the first part, the Managing Editor of CDR, Susan Song, reported the current progress of CDR to Editorial Board members from the aspects of publication, citation, Special Issue, webinar, interview, and expert distribution.
In the second part, Susan Song reported the future development plan of CDR. In particular, she emphasized the importance of high-quality manuscripts for the long-term development of the journal. The Editorial Board members also discussed this point and shared their views. To sum up, the Editorial Office should strictly control publishing quality further, and the Editorial Board should comprehensively evaluate the scientific and professional value of articles in review process.
At last, the Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Godefridus J. Peters, together with the Editorial Board members actively participated in the discussion. The discussion mainly focused on the selection of Associate Editors, the promotion of Junior Editorial Board members, the scope of CDR, the evaluation standard of the manuscript, the distribution ratio of the article types, and the conference cooperation and sponsorship. The Editorial Board gave significant opinions on these issues and constructive suggestions for CDR's development. The Editorial Office will attach great importance to their excellent suggestions and implement them in a serious manner in the ensuing work.
