J-MEMS Editor-in-Chief and Editors

The first issue of IEEE/JMEMS appeared in March, 1992 and the Journal was published quarterly from 1992 to 2002 when it changed to a bimonthly format.

From 1992 to 1997, the JMEMS Editor-in-Chief was Dr. William Trimmer; from 1997 to 2012 Professor Richard S. Muller of the University of California, Berkeley was the Editor-in-Chief.  Christofer Hierold, Professor of Micro and Nanosystems at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, became the EIC in October of 2012.

The JMEMS Editorial Board plays a key role in assuring the archival quality of published papers. One of the Editorial Board members is responsible for the review process of each paper and that Editor is identified in a footnote on the first page of each accepted paper. Those members of the Editorial Board, who are designated as Senior Editor, are sometimes assigned the responsibilities of Editor-in-Chief for selected submitted papers to JMEMS.
