This publication is also an invitation for you, readers, to first explore JVWR’s past issues at our website, and then contribute as authors or even as editors of future special issues.
The Assembled issue is a place for various papers, on the topic of the journal – that are being collected during the year and published usually once a year.
Each issue is managed by one managing Issue Editor with an option for 2-3 co-editors. The managing issue editor is the prime contact person and the leader behind the issue.
We are looking for issue editors to manage the next Assembled 2018 issue and a special issue about Mindfulness and Flow. Issue editors take full charge of one issue.
