|Becoming Editorial Board Member|
Scholarlink Resource Centre Journal publishes serious, authentic and scholarly articles. We believe that responsive publishing and open dialog around well-formed ideas grounded in experience and/or deep study (hopefully both) serves our community better than protracted process to incrementally advance the rigor of a piece before its eventual exposure to light.
The purpose of the Scholarlink Resource Centre Journal is to stimulate and communicate research, theory, and critical thought in all areas that journal addresses. Because our Journal is international in scope, authors from all areas of the world are encouraged to submit manuscripts. Comparative cross-national and cross-cultural research reports are especially welcome. In addition to original research reports and review essays, book reviews, research notes, comments, and methodological contributions are appropriate for publication. The journal also publishes special issues that highlight research on single themes of particular importance to the field. The Journal is published bi-monthly.
We would like to provide our authors more editorial review than they did get, which is next to none. We only make minor formatting and mechanical edits. In the meantime, let's not let your red pen or our lack of enough of them get in the way of good ideas reaching the right eyes and ears promptly.
While we screen submissions, we do not and cannot fully vet authors and facts. Problems will come up from time to time. Authors who choose to submit their work to us do so courageously, realizing that they are subject to a good wire brushing by our discriminating and vocal readers public for any errors. We trust our audience to appreciate the distinction between inaccuracies that do not foul the rest of the work, and major issues:
