Subject: Journal of Consumer Health on the Internet- call for editor for new column
Routledge/Taylor & Francis is currently recruiting for a column editor to take the lead on a new column for the Journal of Consumer Health on the Internet. The journal is in its seventeenth volume and publishes four issues per year.
We envision the column being a venue for the expression of the consumer’s perspective on health information available to them electronically, whether that information is found on the internet, in an electronic health record or personal health record, through social media or networking sites, or through resources given to them by their healthcare provider or concerned family member. The new column editor would have the opportunity to reach out to consumers and consumer groups and provide a voice for their opinions, challenges, and resources for finding, evaluating and utilizing health information accessed electronically.
About the journal:
The Journal of Consumer Health on the Internet covers international research and information on programs and services aimed at helping patients and the general public find health information on the internet.
As the amount of health information on the Web increases exponentially, it becomes critical that providers of health information programs and services, including librarians in all settings, and health educators, be knowledgeable about what is available online and be able to direct users to reliable, accurate, quality information. To that end, this valuable journal focuses on consumer health information programs and services that help guide consumers to quality health information.
The Journal of Consumer Health on the Internet is an essential resource for libraries, persons, institutions and agencies whose responsibilities include making health information and education available to the general public.
