Tragically, Dr. Ken Evans, a long-standing and active UK member of our International Advisory Board, died suddenly, quite recently (July 2015); sadly, John Rowan, also from UK, another member of the IAB, died in August 2018. We thank them for their gifts and we mourn their passing.
IAB Information (Dec, 2018)
We have gon through a process of completing all the affiliations of the International Advisory Board (and the Editorial Board) as part of our application process to the PubMedCentral, Scopus, and the Thompson-Reuters Social Science Citations Index.
Since 2003, we had had very little regular contact with some of the people in the (old) IAB - nostra culpa - so , after 16 years, we started the protracted process of slowly and gently re-constituting the IAB. We are naturally delighted if any of those people on the (old) IAB - listed below as pre-2010 IAB members - are willing to continue serving with the Journal ... and we have also been warmly welcoming several new nominations to the IAB.
In Feb 2013, we elected 10 new members, so now we have an IAB of about 40 people from 18 different countries and many different backgrounds (see above). Since then, Heward Wilkinson and Joanne Graham Wilson were elected to the IAB (Feb, 2014) and also Theodor Itten, who (in February, 2015) stepped down from being the IJP Associate Editor. There are also a couple more applications presently in the pipeline.
IAB members currently get a (free) PDF copy of each issue of the Journal; they are expected to support and promote the Journal, in whatever way is appropriate for them; they also help to review articles in the "double-blind, peer-review" process; and they advise the Editor and the Editorial Board on any specialised topics; etc.
Ideally any new applications would come from experienced (and published) psychotherapists, especially from countries which are not yet represented, and from a wide variety of mainstreams, modalities or methods; from people working as an experienced lecturer, trainer, supervisor and/or psychotherapist, and/or from those involved in psychotherapy research; ... and who are also willing to participate in and support the goals of the IJP in various ways: (i) by recommending the IJP to colleagues and students in their country; (ii) by occasionally writing for the IJP; (iii) by encouraging new authors to submit articles; (iv) by occasionally refereeing articles, or assisting in getting them refereed; (v) by publishing research in the IJP; (vi) by referencing previously published IJP articles in their publications (when appropriate); and (vii) by promoting the IJP at any conferences and seminars that they might attend. IAB members may also be asked to review books and articles. They will receive a free (PDF) subscription to IJP in return for their active involvement.
IAB members could also be previous members of the IJP Editorial Board, who now cannot make the 'required' regular two EAP meetings p.a. Please see attached requirements.
New applications or nominations are always welcome!
Previous (Pre-2010) International Advisory Board
Unfortunately, with the change of publisher from Carfax, and then to Taylor & Francis in 2003-4, we lost touch with many of these people (below) and didn't have (or weren't given) any contact details for them. We regret this immensely and, if any of the previous IAB wish to re-join, please let us know. You will be very welcome. We would just need some biographical information about degrees, and posts held etc. (as above).
