Arbuckle, Plastina join Journal of Soil and Water Conservation editorial board

J. Gordon Arbuckle and Alejandro Plastina have both joined the editorial board of the Journal of Soil and Water Conservation. Plastina will serve as an associate editor, and Arbuckle will serve as a research editor and co-chair of the editorial board.

In a press release, the journal said that it will add a second research editor for the first time since its inception. Arbuckle will oversee the review of research in the social sciences. “We are seeing more submissions from social scientists across the globe than ever before, and we want to ensure we are meeting the needs of our readers by publishing the best, high quality, up-to-date research in all the sciences—both physical and social—that is needed to advance conservation, particularly with the urgency in making our food systems and communities resilient to climate change,” Gretchen Sassenrath, JSWC research co-editor said in the release.
