Just stick with one. EIC takes up a lot of time. More doesn't equal better in this case.

I have the option of EIC for both journals. One is more established (older), and the other is like brand new (5 years old?) but in the same practice area as my future (finance).

thoughts?


EIC of the journal in your practice area (and just that position). More established isn't going to mean much, in most cases, unless we are talking about law review. Marginal cost is much greater than marginal benefit of working on two journals.

Along this line...so whichever one is less work. Probably the more established one since it is already has the tradition of how to do thing (purely assumption here).

You should have asked them rather than the clueless people on here. Ask the current eic's and managing editors what their responsibilities are and what advice they would give you.

Don't ask them what you should do in regards to YOUR situation. Ask them about their own experiences. How much work did they have to do as an EIC? Or as a ME? Would they do it again? Did they have time to for other commitments? That kind of thing.
