Subject Editors
Subject Editors serve a key role in the peer review process and the wide variety of papers published in the Journal of Fish and Wildlife Management and North American Fauna requires a large and diverse cadre of over 100 experts from many fields across many agencies, organizations, and academic institutions. They function to uphold the standards of Service journals through the coordination of the peer review of manuscripts and by making summary recommendations to the Editor-In-Chief, based on the reviews they have received and their assessment of the manuscript.

The identity of specific Subject Editors is not revealed to authors, except when requested by the Subject Editor, but the names of all Subject Editors and reviewers that contribute each year are published annually in way of thanks and recognition for their contributions.

Reviewers
Reviewers are the backbone of the peer review system and perform the bulk of the heavy lifting in the publication process. The success of peer review relies on a community of experts able to carry out impartial reviews of manuscripts. A list of reviewer names will be published annually in the journal to recognize their contribution. Reviewers are recruited from within the Service, as well as other agencies and organizations. Reviewers can volunteer their services by signing up on the online submission sites for the Journal of Fish and Wildlife Management and North American Fauna.
