For a Few Board Members More

Writing about web page https://exchanges.warwick.ac.uk/index.php/exchanges/about/editorialTeam

One more new Board member brings us up to strength.

Over the summer we had an open call out to early career researchers based at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia to join our Editorial Board. Monash was the first of Warwick's partner institutions we recruited people to the Board back in late 2017, and over the years the team members there have made a stunning contribution to the journal. A couple of the longer standing Monash-originated members stood down from the Board earlier this year, and so the time was ripe to open the books to see if any new blood could be recruited from our Australian partners.

I am pleased to report that Jacob Thomas (Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Science) came forward, and has as of the end of August joined the Board. Jacob's going through their induction and training period at the moment, but you'll be please to know you can read all about their career and research over on the Exchanges Board Profiles. And while you're there, why not refresh your memory about all the wonderful people who help make Exchanges the success it is today!

50th Podcast Episode: Across Two Professional Worlds

Writing about web page https://exchanges.warwick.ac.uk/index.php/exchanges/podcast

Exchanges’ podcast hits its 50th episode with a very special guest.

It is with some measure of joy I can announce that we have released the 50th episode of the Exchanges Discourse podcast. I am pleased that over the past three and a bit years we have grown this offshoot of the journal into a thriving and complimentary collection of scholarship, insight and discussion across our contributing community. When we started out I rather feared a lot of the episodes would be me replicating blog posts as a monologue.

While this was initially true as in the early days there were a few of those kinds of episodes, since then we have increasingly transitioned to featuring conversations with our contributing community about their lives, professional work and insights into the broader academic world.

I had originally been planning a reflective 50th episode, looking back over the past few years of the podcast, but then I got an offer to interview someone on the podcast who hadn’t been an author in the journal – but rather the subject of a past paper. It felt rather serendipitous that this rather unusual guest would therefore occupy the 50th episode focus, and despite a few hiccups in arranging a suitable interview time we finally came into sync recently.

Here's the episode details and link

Across Two Professional Worlds: In Conversation with Intissar Haddiya: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/exchangesias/episodes/Across-Two-Professional-Worlds-In-Conversation-with-Intissar-Haddiya-e27v3a1 [24:34]

For our 50th Episode I’m in conversation with Intissar Haddiya (Professor of Nephrology, Oujda, Morocco) about her twin lives as a practicing scholar and fiction author. Intissar featured as the subject of a recent paper in Exchanges – The Doctor-Writer Experience of Intissar Haddiya – and hence that’s why she’s appearing in discussion with us today. We discuss balancing her professional roles, and how the insights from each help inform her work in the differing sphere. We touch too on her experiences with professional publishing, and the advice she has for other scholars and writers of fiction looking towards their first work.

Given we’re into the summer break season, and then heading into the new academic year, I suspect it’ll be a while before our next episode – so a perfect time to listen to this and catch up on any previous episodes you might have missed!

New Editorial Board Members Welcomed

Writing about web page https://exchanges.warwick.ac.uk/index.php/exchanges/about/editorialTeam

A new crop of editors has joined our Board.

We are very pleased to announce that three more new Editorial Board members have joined Exchanges. This is as a result of our programme to both continue to bring in new insights to our editorial team, and also to replace some of our long-standing editors who have stood down from the Board in recent months. So, it is a hearty and warm Exchanges welcome to:

  • Dr Bing Lu, Faculty of Arts, University of Warwick, UK
  • Dr Louise Morgan, Centre for the History of Medicine, University of Warwick, UK
  • Dr Ute Oswald, Centre for the History of Medicine, University of Warwick, UK

You can read about all three of these editors, and all our Board members, on our Board Profile page: https://exchanges.warwick.ac.uk/index.php/exchanges/BoardProfiles

These three new editors represent the first time we have directly recruited from Warwick’s Institute of Advanced Study’s early career fellows programme for some years. Given Exchanges longstanding relationship with this community as chief editor I am especially delighted we have strengthened our links here. I am sure Bing, Louise and Ute will have many useful insights and contributions to make over the coming years.

Meanwhile, we are also in the process of recruiting editors from Australia’s Monash University, long time home to our very first international Editorial Board members back in 2017/18. As Monash has become a little less represented on the Board over the past year, I am pleased to have been able to reach out to potential editors over there, through the agency of our mutual International Office colleagues. Hopefully, in a month or two I’ll be able to share more about our next crop of editors!

Introducing Book Reviews: New Submission Format

Writing about web page https://exchanges.warwick.ac.uk/index.php/exchanges/guidance#formats

Following interest from a number of authors, Exchanges has introduced a new article submission format.

Exchanges has been approached a few times recently by authors asking if we would consider publishing critical and evaluative reviews of recent or significant texts. Looking back, over past issues, we have had some articles which arguably broadly fell into this category published as critical reviews. However, to date we had not set up a separate book reviews submission format. After a little consideration, and following a brace of recent submissions to the journal, I am happy to announce that from this latest issue of Exchanges onward we are now formally inviting authors to submit reviews of worthy and ideally recently published academic research texts. Such books may be author monographs, multivolume works or even textbooks.

Writing Book Reviews

Owing to Exchanges' audience, many of whom are early career post-graduate researchers, such book review manuscripts should be crafted by their authors to offer an introductory overview of the work under consideration intended for readers less or unfamiliar with a field. As such, as with all our articles, book reviews should seek to explore, clarify and unpick particular domain specific concepts, terms or ideas, rather than assuming automatic peer-familiarity.

Ideally, and initially, Exchanges is more interested in reviews of books published in relatively recent years, given their relative topicality and impact on scholarly discourse. However, we may consider reviews of older, established works or those of a more literary configuration too, but authors are advised to consult with the Editor-in-Chief (EIC) ahead of submission to avoid disappointment. Conversely, authors who are looking to review a spread of literature within a field, would be expected to submit a review article for peer-review consideration rather than a piece under this format.

Selection Guidelines

As per our normal submission review policies Exchanges reserves the right to decline for publication consideration any book review submissions which do not meet our base quality controls, journal scope or other policy requirements. Moreover, while book reviews will be subjected to an editorial review and revisions process before consideration for publication acceptance, they will not undergo external peer review. Authors wanting to discuss a potential book review manuscript ahead of formally submitting it to the journal for consideration, are warmly welcomed to open a dialogue with the EIC at any time. However, such pre-submission discussions are not a requirement or prerequisite for any submission.

We look forward to reading your future book review submissions to this new category with considerable interest.

New Episode: Presidential History and Digital Pedagogies

Writing about web page https://open.spotify.com/episode/0FSi6N6Uc1lICgk044UgwS?si=bKXxryr4SKiwygwLuCF_8Q

After a short break, we're back with the latest in our series of author interviews on the podcast.

Once more we bring you a discussion with one of our past authors. This time I am talking with journal author Rebecca Stone about her paper Scaling Up: The pedagogical legacy of Then & Now, as well as her work on US presidential history – especially pertaining to Harry Truman. The episode moves on to discuss pandemic lessons for effective digital pedagogies - both online and in the classroom, as well as an exploration of why it can be good in the long term for students to learn about trying and failing. As always, we touch on personal publishing experiences - good and bad - alongside offering some advice for early career and first-time academic authors in publishing a journal article.

Listen in here: https://open.spotify.com/episode/0FSi6N6Uc1lICgk044UgwS?si=bKXxryr4SKiwygwLuCF_8Q

New Episode – Interdisciplinarity & Publishing – Panel Discussion

Writing about web page https://exchanges.warwick.ac.uk/index.php/exchanges/podcast

A new feature length episode of the podcast arrives to offer a lively insight into interdisciplinary research.

After a brief pause, I’m delighted to announce the launch of a new episode of the Exchanges Discourse podcast. It’s taken a few weeks to find a perfect date for all my guests to appear at once, but I think you’ll agree it was worthwhile. Listen in here:

In this very special panel discussion episode, I talk with four scholars from around the globe about the art, science and everything in between of interdisciplinarity and academic publishing. In a lively exchange the panel members explore their perceptions of what is, and what might not be, interdisciplinary work, with particular reference to publishing research articles. Along the way, the panel also takes a view on what a broader academic reader wants along with considering practicalities of reviewing and publishing articles incorporating an interdisciplinary voice, mode or perspective. We even touch on issues of integration within academic scholarship to a degree.

The episode features guest panellists: Alena Cicholewski (University of Oldenburg, Germany), Sharon Coleclough (Staffordshire University, UK), Huayi Huang (University of Edinburgh, UK) & Kwasu David Tembo (Ashesi University, Accra, Ghana). My thanks to each of them for their time and input to the episode.

As this is – officially- the longest episode we’ve ever produced, listeners might want to avail themselves of the episode index below – so they can jump in to the most relevant moment of the episode.

New Episode: Creating Informal & Informative Academic Discussion Articles

Writing about web page https://anchor.fm/exchangesias/episodes/Considering-Conversations-Creating-Informal--Informative-Academic-Discussion-Articles-e1vbokb

Last month we released a podcast episode looking at one of our two non-peer reviewed submission formats: the critical reflection article. Following feedback, it seemed a companion episode looking at the other of the formats was a good idea. Hence, today we launch a lengthy episode of the Exchanges Discourse dedicated to the conversation article. Listen in here:

(Also available on Spotify)

As it is once again a lengthy discussion, there is an episode index to give you an idea of where you might want to dip in – rather than listen the whole thing.

  • Opening: 00:00
  • Context: 01:07
  • Defining Conversation Articles: 03:33
  • Why Conversations Matter: 10:30
  • Writing Conversation Articles: 15:00
  • Conclusion: 23:45
  • Wrap Up: 24:48

The next episode of the Discourse is scheduled to be our panel discussion on interdisciplinary publishing – be sure to listen to that, as I suspect it might be our most exciting episode yet!

New Podcast Episodes: Pavel Fedotov and Colin Hutchinson in Conversation about their work

Writing about web page https://exchanges.warwick.ac.uk/index.php/exchanges/podcast

Two final episodes brings a year of podcasting to a close

It might be a little early for Christmas, but not by much, but so here’s a little pre-gift for you to enjoy. Not one but two new episodes of The Exchanges Discourse podcast series, talking with authors about their lives, work and publication.

In an interesting counterpoint firstly I’m In Conversation with Pavel Fedotov, young author of the article Critical Analysis of the Electric Vehicle Industry: Five forces and strategic action fields, about his studies and ambitions.

Then I’m talking with veteran author Colin Hutchinson, the mind behind End of the Line: The unpublished novels of Anita Mason, about his life and work as an indecent scholar in the realm of the social novel. In particular we touch on his hopes in bringing these novels to greater attention and perhaps even public view one day.

For those keeping score, these are the 16th and 17th episodes of the podcast this year, with a grand total of 6 hours 59 minutes of content across them all. As the host and producer of the show, it’s been a delight talking with so many different authors around the world about their work and publishing, and I do hope you’ve all enjoyed listening in on our chats.

The first episode for 2023 is already drafted, as – spoiler alert – it’ll be focussed on one of Exchanges most popular formats: the critical reflection. Listen out for that in January. In the meantime, I’ll leave to enjoy every episode from our first three seasons of the podcast.

(Also available on Spotify)

And if you’ve enjoyed them, have a comment or suggestion for future episodes, of would like to feature as a guest in a future episode – then do get in touch with me.

New Episode: In Conversation Again with Huayi Huang: Realism & Epistemologies

Writing about web page https://exchanges.warwick.ac.uk/index.php/exchanges/podcast

Once more we are delighted to share a conversation with one of our past authors. In this case we were joined by an author on the podcast for the second time, marking their sophomore contribution to the journal. As to be expected, this gave us a chance to delve into some new areas of academic debate and discussion.

In this episode we talk to Huayi Huang (Usher Institute of Health and Wellbeing, The University of Edinburgh, Scotland) about his work and publications. We focus in on Huayi’s recent article – Reflections from Research Practice: Realism and its reality, coming to know this, and working out its mechanisms of socio-material change– which appeared in the Autumn 2022 issue (Exchanges v10.1). In a broad conversation we discuss realism, knowledge systems, compromises and normalising change. As always, the episode wraps up with suggested advice on early career and first-time academic journal authors, focusing in on how to successfully overcome trepidations at the point of submission.
