Supporting the journal

The editor is the journal’s ambassador, here are some of the ways to support the journal's development:

1. Authors & Commissioning

  • Submit to the journal
  • Encourage people in their network to submit to the journal   
  • Contact prospective contributors directly, giving the correspondence a personal touch, which is likely to be better received 
  • Approach interesting posters or speakers at conferences with invitations to submit to the journal 

2. Attendance and participation

  • Attend board meetings and actively participate
  • Attend conferences within your community
  • Share new trends or ‘hot topics’ in the discipline that could form the basis for commissioned papers or Themed Issues
  • Guest Edit or commission papers for Themed Issues. Themed Issues on current topics are likely to be highly cited and well-read
  • Suggest new board members who may represent key sub-disciplines or geographical regions
  • Provide thoughts on potential topics to be incorporated into the journal scope in line with the needs of the community that the journal serves.
