From my experience, the quality, impact, and engagement of academic journals can be improved by following practical steps.

  1. Organising Editorial Board meetings
  2. Organising webinars inviting authors who published articles recently or published high impact articles in the journal
  3. Proposing an international association based on the journal
  4. Inviting experienced researchers to organise special issues
  5. Supporting high quality international and regional conferences
  6. Promoting recent publications on social media
  7. Dividing Editorial Board members into groups by themes to improve their engagement
