more than one (section)editor for the same journal section

In our journal there are more than one section editor assigned to each journal sections. How they operate in such situation? How the submission is managed then? In most cases presented there is just one editor or section editor.

Hi Peter,

If more than one SE is assigned to a journal section, they will all be automatically assigned to any assignment that comes in, and will have to manage their duties outside of the system. If you have many SEs and want to control who works on which article, you should not assign any SEs to any journal sections. Then, whenever a submission comes in, the Editor(s) will have to assign an SE.
