Many people are involved in the creation of each issue of The Prevention Researcher. Obviously, our authors and editorial staff have a big impact on the content we provide; however, there are many other people who guide our topics, articles, and content – namely our Advisory and Editorial* Boards.
Our Advisory Board represents our readers; they are social workers, counselors, program administrators, case managers, and others who work with youth in school and community-based organizations. The Advisory Board provides valuable feedback during the planning of each issue. Additionally, Board members comment on the readability and practicality of our articles.
If you are interested in being a part of our Advisory Board, please know our requirements include committing to a 3-year term, timely response to correspondence, and reviewing one issue a year. In return, Board members receive a complimentary subscription to The Prevention Researcher as well as the opportunity to shape this national publication.
Deadline for submitting an application is July 15, 2012.
If you have questions, please send me email at CKimball@TPRonline.org
* More about our Editorial Board (consisting primarily of researchers and academics) will appear in a later blog post.
