Open Editors collects publicly available information about the editors and editorial boards of scholarly journals through a technique called webscraping, whereby a script accesses the websites of the publishers to extract the relevant information. The codes (programmed in R) are available at GitHub.
Currently, only the journals of the following 22 publishers were taken into account:
For more details, please see the pre-print which outlines the method and data sample with greater precision. It also discusses issues of diversity and intersectionality; of linking the dataset with PIDs (persistent identifiers) such as ORCID and ROR; and of current limitations regarding the scope and coverage of the data.
The whole data dump – two CSV-files of ca. 111 MB – is available at GitHub (in the "Output"-folder).
Open Editors is distributed under a Creative Commons-license (CC0). You can re-use the dataset or its codes freely. If you wish to attribute the original data-collection to Open Editors, you could perhaps include the following reference:

This project was made possible through a fellowship ("Freies Wissen") from Wikimedia Deutschland in 2020/21.
In addition, my other side-project OOIR (the Observatory of International Research) kindly provides the webspace for this project. :-)
