Hi Apoorva,
Thanks for your question. This is something we get asked a lot, so we decided to produce a short video about it! Follow this link to watch John Plummer, Senior Editor at Nature Materials, explain about the skills required for scientific journal editing, and the motivations for becoming an editor: https://masterclasses.nature.com/channels/237-resources
