As related to the Editor's experience, it is huge responsibility for an editor to decide fairly about the all manuscripts requesting for publications from all over the world. The Editor's evaluation strongly impact on the reputations of journals and also influence the betterness in sciences and technology.

Reviewer feedback verification is very important by editor.

Thanks Federico! I would find some journals asking the reviewers to inform them if the manuscript is suitable for publication in their journals. Does this mean they do not do their job properly?

Thulisile, a very good point/question! I'm curious to see an answer too.

I'm just beginning to explore how peer review works--and I hadn't considered what that looks like from the Editor's perspective.  As a student currently doing research in a field that is fairly new to me, I recognize similar methods that I'm using  to find relevant articles and researchers, in methods that an editor would use to find reviewers. I appreciate the inclusion of this video in the Master Class for Peer Review.

Good to hear that making the decision is unmistakably an editor's job. It is funny to hear so much ado about "Reviewer #2" as if the editor becomes hostage to the referee.

Indeed, its those different opinions that make scientific journals interesting as they bring out the diversity.

I agree with Yasin.  And editor has a great responsibility

The warky and murky aspects of peer reviewing process and the role of the editor that I have witnessed is the editor deciding on just one reviewer's comment; rejecting the manuscript even when the comments are somewhat positive.
