Book Reviews

The journal welcomes books for review. The process will be managed by its dedicated Book Review Editor

Editorial Board

The Editors and the Book Review Editor are supported in their work by an international Editorial Board. Members of the Board are responsible for two tasks.

  1. Board members are ambassadors for the IJRTP. They will assist the Editors in disseminating awareness of the journal, identifying and inviting authors to submit material to IJRTP, and assist in the identification and co-ordination of reviewers.
  2. IJRTP is an independent, online, flexible format journal, and the Board members are encouraged to identify strengths and weaknesses as it develops over time, and to introduce new and exciting ideas in its administration and management. Their job therefore, is to support and perhaps even challenge the status quo of the IJRTP.

Industry Advisory Board

An innovative development in the IJRTP is the inclusion of an Industry Advisory Board, which will include international practitioners whose expertise lies within the remit of the Journal. This group will have much the same role as the Editorial Committee, but in this instance they will have an industry focus. Their input should ensure that the IJRTP maintains a dual academic AND practice-based focus, remains relevant for industry, and thus, is more meaningful and relevant for all interested parties.
