Editors & Editorial Board

The Editors and Senior Editorial Board of Scientific Data guide the 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, and an Associate Professor at the Department of Engineering Science. 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. https://sansonegroup.eng.ox.ac.uk/

Veronique van den Berghe

Associate Editor

Veronique obtained her PhD at KU Leuven in Belgium where she investigated the development and migration of cortical interneurons in the mouse embryo. She went on to do postdoctoral work at the Instituto de Neurociencias in Spain and at King’s College London looking at the integration of these neurons in the postnatal brain. Prior to joining Scientific Data, Veronique was an editor at Genome Biology and Nature Biotechnology.

Viki HurstViki Hurst

Consulting Editor

Viki received her PhD at Newcastle University looking at the effects of underlying affective states on decision-making and cognition in animal models, and did postdoctoral work at the University of Sheffield investigating mechanisms of Cancer-Induced Bone Pain. Prior to joining Scientific Data she worked at a UK research funder promoting best practice in experimental design and reporting of animal research. Viki is currently Managing Editor for the life sciences portfolio at the Nature Partner Journals.

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 Chief 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.
