Columinst at WAPR Bulletin
Esther Ogundipe, PhD
Research Fellow, University of South-Eastern Norway
WAPR Bulletin is together with the website the major source of communication in our worldwide network. Here we can exchange information, present new ideas for practice development, inspire each other in ways of involving service users and family members both in WAPR activities and in local projects, encourage the establishment of new branches and together promote psychosocial rehabilitation around the world.
In order to strengthen our WAPR network we will publish two Bulletins every year; in June and November.
There will be four sections:
- Message by the president
- Editorial (Invited from Board members and other experts in the area)
- Reports from branches about activities, conferences and meetings
- Upcoming meetings and announcements
We strongly encourage Regional Vice-residents and deputies regularly to provide reports from their regions as well as relevant articles. Brief editorial guidelines follow below. In order to have a dynamic and inspiring Bulletin we must act as a worldwide team.
Articles: We invite you to send us articles focusing on various aspects of psychosocial rehabilitation. The Bulletin is not practicing peer-review. Length: not more than 3000 words.
Reports: We welcome reports from the various activities of the branches. We suggest writing in a narrative style suitable for publishing.
Meetings and announcements: We invite you to inform about upcoming events in the various branches both on the website and in the Bulletin. Please be aware of publishing times.
Language and photos: The language of publication is English. Authors having English as a second language must have the manuscript edited by an English-speaking person before submission.
We would like photos related to all the manuscripts.
Deadlines and submitting: June edition has deadline April 1st
November edition has deadline September 1st
Manuscripts are submitted to Editor Marit Borg: firstname.lastname@example.org
The editorial committee looks forward to working together with you!
Best wished from
Ricardo Guinea, Tae-Yeon Hwang and Marit Borg
