The possibility and necessity for editors of academic journals to participate in the evaluation of scientific quality of the journals are discussed. Editors can make the evaluation based on their dialectal thinking, professional knowledge and editing skills. They attach importance to peer review, select suitable experts to ensure papers are carefully checked, keep their duty as an eligible final reviewer, improve paper quality by manuscript revision and train a high level team of authors. Editors must play their role as gatekeepers to improve the academic quality of the journals.
