Call for nominations: Journal editor of Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice, and Policy

Opened nominations for the editorship for the years 2015-2020.

The American Psychological Association’s Division of Trauma Psychology has opened nominations for the editorship of Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice and Policy for the years 2015-2020. Steven Gold, PhD, is the incumbent editor. This is a peer-reviewed, bimonthly publication that publishes empirical research on the psychological effects of trauma. The journal is a forum for an interdisciplinary discussion on trauma, blending science, theory, practice and policy.

Candidates should be available to start receiving manuscripts in early 2014 to prepare for issues published in 2015. Please note that the APA Publications and Communications Board encourages participation by members of underrepresented groups, and therefore welcomes the nomination of members from racial/ethnic minorities, the LGBT community and people with disabilities. Self-nominations are also encouraged.

Candidates should be nominated by accessing APA’s EditorQuest site on the web. Using your web browser, visit the Editor Quest webpage. On the Home menu on the left, find “Guests.” Next, click on the link “Submit a Nomination,” enter your nominee’s information and click “Submit.” Prepared statements of one page or less in support of a nominee can also be submitted by email to Rosemarie Sokol-Chang, managing director.

Deadline for accepting nominations is March 15, 2013.
