4open Interview series

In this blog series, you can discover more about the Editors-in-Chief of 4open. This week we’re talking to Professor Theodore Simos, who leads the editorial board for Mathematics and works with his fellow Editors-in-Chief on the broader development of the journal.

Theodore, can you tell us about your experience and education?

I have a Ph.D. in Numerical Analysis from the Department of Mathematics of the National Technical University of Athens, Greece. I'm a researcher in Mathematics, an active member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, the European Academy of Sciences and a corresponding member of the European Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters.

I currently lead both the Group of Modern Computational Methods at Ural Federal University, and the Group of Numerical and Applied Mathematics on Urgent Problems of Energy and Power Engineering, Ulyanovsk State Technical University, both in the Russian Federation. I am also part time professor in the Laboratory of Computational Sciences within the Faculty of Economy, Management and Informatics at the University of Peloponnese, Greece.

I am the Editor-in-Chief of 4 scientific journals and an Editor of 25 more, as well as a reviewer for several other publications and conferences.

What excites you about working on this new journal?

The philosophy of the new journal - promoting excellence in academic scholarship, disseminating high quality, original research and it being an open access, multidisciplinary journal - is something unique for the international community. That is why I am so keen to support its development.

How do you see the journal developing over the next five years?

I hope that over the next five years 4open will receive a large number of papers for review and that this journal will have made a significant impact within the international community.

What advice would you give to researchers thinking of submitting to 4open?

I would strongly encourage researchers to submit their papers to 4open, as they will receive a thorough and ethical review, and will be publishing to a global audience.

Thanks Theodore, it’s great to have your expertise in the 4open team. We're confident that with the hard work of everyone involved we can achieve these goals for the journal.
