Editorial Board established
The Editorial Board of the new journal is established. It consists of Dr Rick Holden, Liverpool John Moores University as Editor in Chief, together with Dr Jamie Callahan, Drexel University; Dr Mark Loon, Worcester University; Ann Rennie, Independent HRD Consultant; Dr Jan Myers, Northumbria University and Dr Roland Yeo, Saudi Aramco.
The Board are working towards launch at the 45th IFTDO World Conference at Bahrain. This takes place between the 21st and 23rd March with a theme of “Lessons from Leaders”. More details on the conference can be found at www.iftdo.net
Whilst the intention is that the journal will principally be available on line via the web site (and via the web sites of both IFTDO and UFHRD) an initial print run will be undertaken. This will help in the marketing and establishment of the Journal. Details will be announced as to how anyone interested can obtain a hard copy will be made available nearer the launch date.
The Editorial Board welcomes a wide range of interest in the new journal. Whilst substantive articles on practice, policy and research will be the main content this will be complemented by other types of content including interviews, viewpoints book and resource reviews. Ideas and contribution are welcome and the Editorial Board welcomes contact by anyone interested in the helping to achieve the aspirations and objectives of the new journal.
