The survey concluded by remarking that although there were instances of
breach in editors’ professionalism, those were seldom and isolated
instances. The authors summarized that there was “little support and
justification for casting and portraying academic journal editors as
excessively powerful gatekeepers who jealously guard and control ingress
into, and progression within, the academy.” Overall, “the broad consensus
was that editors are generally effective, conscientious, fair and
proficient, and the system within which they operate fit for its purpose.”
