In scientific journals, smart management systems play a crucial role in qualitative progress of publishing. Journals and publishers have different strategies for accepting papers in order to maintain and enhance publishing quality. A new smart and efficient system to manage the editorial board of journals has been implemented and is introduced in this essay. This system is designed on a web-based platform and uses advanced software technologies for needs assessment, designing, and implementation. This system has many advantages, such as: higher quality management of journals and publishers; identifying and ranking editorial board members; evaluating the accuracy of journals; and providing a system for smart scientometrics of journals, publishers, editors and reviewers. This system is designed to be compatible with future extensibility and can be used as a global database for managing an editorial board in journals and publishing houses.
