Editorial Advisory Board

Members of the PPJ Editorial Advisory Board are appointed by the PPJ Editorial Team. In collaboration with the Editorial Team, Board members provide counsel and editorial leadership by helping to evaluate the quality of journal content and to ensure that all features of the PPJ project reflect our mission to share, create, and publish scholarship by and for the public.



The Editorial Advisory Board provides advice and guidance regarding ongoing issues related to the project, its mission, and direction. The Editorial Team has an open-door policy and welcomes feedback from board members related to any aspect of the PPJ.


Editorial Advisory Board members contribute to the quality of content published in the  PPJ by agreeing to regularly participate in the PPJ’s Formative Peer Review Process. Board members serve as reviewers for manuscripts in their fields of expertise at least twice per year.


The PPJ Editorial Team will consult with Editorial Advisory Board members for the approval and management of proposed special issues. The PPJ Editorial Team, Guest Editors external to the Editorial Advisory Board, or Board members themselves may propose special issues. When Board members propose a Special Issue, the PPJ Editorial Team may request that those members serve as guest editors for that special issue.


To provide essential support for the PPJ’s mission, Editorial Advisory Board members work to cultivate connections between the PPJ community and other communities of which they are a part. We encourage members to promote the PPJ as a platform that provides students, colleagues, and fellow advocates with opportunities to publish their work. Such efforts may include discussing the PPJ at scholarly conferences and meetings and with publicly engaged activists and organizations, as well as promoting the PPJ on social media platforms.
