In LUMAT the Editor-in-Chief (EC) is in charge of selecting the Managing Editor (ME) and Advisory Board (AB). Together they formulate a strategy to develop the journal by decicing on the future focus of the journal, upcoming special issues and ways to market the journal. This is done in regular meetings held as frequently as needed, but no less than once a year.

The ME is primarily in charge of implementing the strategy of the journal. This includes overseing the review process of general issues, supporting the guest editors in the special issues and managing the journals online platform.
