Health Promotion Practice
Seeks Associate Editors
for New Commentary Sections
Deadline August 4, 2014
Health Promotion Practice (HPP), an official journal of the Society for Public Health Education, is undergoing changes and creating three new commentary sections -
Tools of the Trade, Career Development, and Book & Media Review. These commentaries will include points of view, interviews, reviews, and invited or solicited papers. We are looking for enthusiastic health professionals to edit the following three commentary sections:
Tools of the Trade will include commentaries on a variety of topics including (but not limited to): global health, ethics, policy, social media, evaluation, etc. The format is flexible - ranging from essays, interviews, or the traditional Tools of the Trade format.
Career Development provides practical information to advance our readers' professional careers. This column will highlight issues that span one's career - from undergraduate/graduate preparation through continuing education.
Book & Media Review will evaluate books, CD-ROMs, DVDs, software, websites, and other wide-ranging resources for health promotion professionals.
Associate Editors work in small teams to develop ideas and solicit content for multiple submissions per year. Associate Editors are also responsible for participating in occasional Editorial Board conference calls, attending the annual HPP Editors meeting at the SOPHE Annual Meeting (Note: Travel expenses are not provided), and submitting a report at the annual editors meeting on their respective sections. The Associate Editors may be called upon to advise the Editor and other Associate Editors on journal strategic and business issues as needed. Finally, they occasionally may be asked to serve as a reviewer or provide recommendations for potential reviewers of manuscripts. The length of appointment is two or three (3) years, with one potential renewable term.
