Aigner Becomes New Member of the Editorial Board

In his position as Associate Editor, Aigner will shape scientific articles and the peer-review process for submitted articles, thereby contributing to the high quality of the published scientific content.

Next to publishing his own research in his field of expertise, Aigner may autonomously suggest certain focus areas for the journal and promote submissions through calls for papers.

"The section Visual Communication can be seen as an international discussion platform", explains Aigner. "We explore how visual representations can create meaning, construct reality, influence our decision-making, and thereby impact our culture."

Aigner’s first focus topic on the issue of Data Visualisation and the call for papers have already gone online:
