Guest Edited Special Issues


I have dedicated a great deal of time to special issues in my research interest areas. On reflection, one of the most satisfying parts about my editing work, has been receiving so many awesome papers, from so many awesome academics. An editor is in the privileged position to accept papers for review and then to work with authors toward final revision and publication.

Below are a list of special issues that I have completed, separate to my editing responsibilities at IEEE Technology and Society Magazine, where I served as an editor-in-chief between 2012 and 2017.

There is a 'background' to every special I've completed with co-guest editors whom I've greatly admired for their effort and example. With time I hope to post the contents of each of the specials with links back to online availability.
