Editorial board

Purpose of the editorial board

The main purpose of the editorial board is to control and review the contents of the news and analyses portal on the Opticalfibersensors.org platform.  Members of the advisory board are not expected to endorse any products, technologies, or companies mentioned. The members are asked to refrain from soliciting reviews for whom such a conflict of interest may be involved.


Other areas in which the editorial board is involved are:


a) Providing ideas for the direction of the platform.

b) Helping to identify possible contributions for the news and analyses portal.  

c) Discuss trends in the industry and make proposals for the optimisation of the platform.
