Recommenders manage the evaluation of submitted manuscripts and eventually recommend or reject them. They have a role similar to that of an editor in a conventional journal (they select reviewers, collect reviews, and make an editorial decision based on reviews). The current list of recommenders can be found below.

Recommenders of PCI Paleontology can recommend up to five papers per year. They are expected to comply with the code of conduct, are eligible for selection as members of the Managing Board for a period of two years, and can propose the nomination of new recommenders. See the PCI Paleontology Guidelines for Recommenders for more information on the key roles and responsibilities.

Interested in becoming a recommender at PCI Paleontology?

Please contact a current recommender in your field and ask them to nominate you to the managing board or send us an email: We generally select people who are post PhD, conduct independent research, and have at least a handful of first author articles (to ensure people have some experience with the publishing process). PCI has signed the Joint Statement of Principles of the Coalition for Diversity and Inclusion in Scholarly Communication, and we at PCI Paleontology fully support this. We aim to have strong representation across fields of research, geographic regions, genders, and in other areas where some groups of people have been traditionally underrepresented in academia. 
There is no minimum time commitment. When submitting, authors suggest recommenders, who then receive automated invitations. Recommenders can choose to accept, decline, or ignore invitations to handle the evaluation of these preprints depending on their schedule.
