Editors, Advisory Panel & Editorial Board

The Editors and Advisory Panel of Scientific Data guide the development, policies, standards and editorial scope of Scientific Data, while our diverse Editorial Board of active researchers oversee peer review of each submitted manuscript.

About the editors

Susanna-Assunta Sansone

Honorary Academic Editor

Susanna focuses on the strategic development of Scientific Data, particularly by fostering relationships with the scientific community and helping to define standards for data reuse. She did her PhD at Imperial College London, and then spent a few years at a private vaccine company before moving into data management and biocuration at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), in Cambridge. In 2010, Susanna joined the University of Oxford e-Research Centre, where she is an Associate Director and Principal Investigator. Her team works on methods and software for curating, sharing and enabling reproducible research. She also works with funding agencies and informatics initiatives to promote community-developed ontologies and standards, and is on the board of several community standardization efforts and open science advocacy initiatives. http://uk.linkedin.com/in/sasansone

Andrew L Hufton

Managing Editor

Andrew is responsible for the editorial policies of Scientific Data, in consultation with the Honorary Editor and Advisory Panel, and works with the Editorial Board to ensure a fair and thorough peer-review process for all submissions. Andrew received his PhD from Stanford University in 2006, and did postdoctoral work at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin. His research included topics in developmental genetics, computational biology and genome evolution. Before joining Scientific Data, Andrew worked as an Editor at Molecular Systems Biology.

Varsha Khodiyar

Data Curation Editor

Varsha is responsible for creating the ISA-tab metadata files associated with articles published by Scientific Data, which facilitate the integration of articles and underlying datasets. In collaboration with the Editorial Board and relevant members of the scientific community, Varsha works to ensure that the most appropriate metadata is being captured for the published data from each community. Varsha began her career in curation after receiving her PhD from the University of Leicester. Based at University College London, she initially worked for the Human Gene Nomenclature Committee, which was followed by an 8 year stint as a Gene Ontology annotator. Prior to joining Scientific Data, Varsha worked on open data publication at the life science journal F1000Research.

Editorial Board

The Editorial Board comprises experimental scientists and data-standards experts from across different fields of science. The Editorial Board, our Honorary Academic Editor and the in-house Managing Editor decide, in consultation, which submissions are sent out for in-depth peer-review based on their appropriateness for Scientific Data’s scope and the reuse value of the associated data. Peer review of each submission is overseen by an Editorial Board member.
