Could you help produce this valuable resource?
As you may be aware, after 26 years as editor of the Human Givens Journal, Denise Winn will be stepping down at the end of 2023. Despite advertising for a successor last year, we have been unable to find any one person who could fulfil the role currently carried out by Denise, who is admittedly leaving rather big boots to fill!
So we are thinking afresh and considering setting up a group comprising individuals with the interest and ability to take on/learn individual aspects of producing the journal – for instance:
- finding books to review and commissioning/writing reviews
- finding relevant research to summarise, which supports our approach or provides new scientific knowledge that can inform practice
- sourcing/writing articles on agreed topics
- editing articles
- identifying worthy interview subjects and carrying out, transcribing and editing interviews.
Each of these roles will be paid according to an agreed maximum for time spent. The ability to be self-motivating and keep to deadlines is essential. Denise would be willing to help the new team in an informal advisory role initially.
If you are interested in becoming part of a team to help ensure the valuable work of the HG Journal continues, we would love to hear from you – please email details of your relevant experience (including HG knowledge) to [email protected] by 31st May.
Also under discussion is how we might publish the journal content in the future – ie not necessarily in a physical format. If you have experience in this area, we’d also like to hear from you.
