I am wondering whether a company employee can take a role of associate editor of a scientific journal. Let's take the following example.
Suppose I am a university professor, and my role is teaching and guiding students and doing research. At the same time, I am also taking a role as an associate editor of a scientific journal (SCI with good IF).
If I quit my job at the university and moved to a company/industry and my main role changed from teaching and research to focus on company products (of course science based products), then can I still continue my role as an associate editor of that journal?
My question is, how do researchers look at this?
