Editorial Process

 

At The Amsterdammer, we follow an editing line before publishing our articles. This said, it is clear that every position is necessary for the well-functioning of the paper and that everyone’s active contribution is essential.

We follow an editorial line before publication which forms the following editorial board:

Editor in Chief

The editor in chief is the leading figure at The Amsterdammer. This editor secures the overall functioning of the media outlet, managing the editors, the copy desk and all content published in The Amsterdammer Magazine.

Editors

Editors are the leading figure of their section. Together, the Lifestyle Editor, Fashion Editor and Audiovisual Editor secure and edit the content for their respective section.

Copy Desk

The Copy Desk Chief manages a group of Copy Editors, who edit the articles and columns after they have been edited by the section Editors.
