Open - openfree License (BioLicense), Wikipedia
Early proponent of open access and open review journal system (since 1994). Found of BioPerl project BioPerl Wikipedia page

I have been one of the earliest proponents of completely open system of hypertext and journal publication system since early 1990s. I have created my own internet hypertext system (like wiki) and also used the very early version of Ward Curnningham's wiki through personal communication.
I think the world should use a completely transparent open submission (pre-print like) and open review system for the fairest and most efficient dissemination of science knowledge.

I am a Perl programmer and have learnt many programming languages.

I confirm that I will act in accordance with the policies of the WikiJournal of Science. Jongbhak (discusscontribs) 02:12, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - this seems a highly suitable candidate. Chiswick Chap (discusscontribs) 10:43, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Ticks all the boxes. Obviously a highly experienced genomicist, but also publishing experience with an open access BMC journal (Genome Biol.) will be very valuable. Coding and wiki experience in multiple languages of additional benefit (I note that the Korean Genomics Center website is also a wiki). T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 11:18, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Questions - What does 'geromics' mean? Why do your articles at Google Scholar appear with the author name 'Jong Park' instead of 'Jong Bhak'? Why not mention your Wikipedia user page and personal website? Sylvain Ribault (discusscontribs) 20:17, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
==> I used to use Jong Park until I got married my wife (2004) who wanted to use "Bhak", as my Korean name "박" actually sounds like "Bhak". Park is a Korean name given by the government in the past when Koreans first created passports years ago.
"Geromics" is a word coined by me (a neologism). Gero + Omics. It means omics study of Gero(aging, gerontology).
I have been into omics and have been running

Open - Founder of

I confirm that I will act in accordance with the policies of the WikiJournal of Science. (discuss) 23:03, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

  • Comment: The experience looks thin, even for associate editor. Wikiletters looks like a prototype that may or may not take off: an aspiration, not an achievement. Sylvain Ribault (discusscontribs) 07:20, 3 November 2020 (UTC)

WikiJournal of Humanities editorial applications

Editorial board application of Amelia Buttress[edit source]

Amelia Buttress PhD, MA (website)
Areas of expertise: public health, mental health, social epidemiology; poverty and health; social inequities; cultural studies; history of public health; media and communications theory

Relevant experience:

Professional - My work draws from interdisciplinary perspectives and uses historical, qualitative and quantitative methods to understand and address the social and structural context of health behavior, with particular emphasis on issues related to ideology, culture, political economy, health disparities, and the mental and the behavioral health of children. I have directed a national collaborative of child psychiatrist access programs and work with clinics to implement social and behavioral care for children in primary care. I have a specific interest in the advancement of public health education and citizen training, especially using new and digital media technology.
Publishing - Following the publication of my first peer reviewed journal article, I decided I would never again write for a peer reviewed journal. Transferring ownership to a remote address where the results of my learning would be hidden behind a paywall in a style and context that isn't accessible to most isn't what motivated me to enter the professional field of public health. Following that instructive experience, I turned to the development of websites and other interactive technologies to explore the complex relationships between form, content, learning, and teaching.
Open - Before entering the field of public health, I gained open experience in multiple settings. As a program manager for a human rights organization, I contributed to the design and implementation of a web forum for information, advocacy and change in the promotion of women's human rights around the world. During my master's studies in Philosophy, Media, and Communication Studies at the European Graduate School, I helped to cultivate and moderate online learning seminars as well as local and regional networking opportunities among an international student body. In public health, I have designed and developed online training and educational platforms to support patient centered and trauma/resilience-informed practices in clinics, schools, and other social services for children and families. As the program director for the National Network of Child Psychiatry Access Programs, I collaborate with clinicians to support the transfer of knowledge from the field of child psychiatry (and its associated disciplines)to pediatric and primary care settings. Since 2016, I have taught courses on Media, Politics, and Evidence in Public Health using Wikipedia's wonderful course resources to train students both to translate complex ideas into common language and to cultivate an awareness of the media environment in which we all swim.

I confirm that I will act in accordance with the policies of the WikiJournal of Humanities. Gingerninjagirl (discusscontribs) 23:33, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support Thanks for applying to join the board! Your areas of expertise would be great additions, and I see that you have been teaching with WikiEducation as part of the activities for many years. This looks like a wonderful combination of experiences to bring to the board. Eyoungstrom (discusscontribs) 14:25, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

WikiJournal Technical Editor applications

Jacob Cody Naccarato (Cody naccarato)[edit source]

Qualifications[edit source]

I have been active on the Wikis for 2 years and 2 months, starting my journey with the not-for-profit “Helping Give Away Psychological Science” (HGAPS). This organization is dedicated to information dissemination, with Wikiversity being a primary platform for these goals. It is from special projects in HGAPS that I have gained excellent technical experience on Wiki as well as great familiarity editing Wiki pages. I have intermediate understanding of transclusion and templates, and an excellent set of skills for Wiki formatting and Wiki text editing. A special project to note would be the emergency banner system I implemented for HGAPS’ Wiki pages. This project highlights my ability to understand complex Wiki code and apply them in a stylistic, useful, and impactful way. Current personal projects include importing templates into Wikiversity from Wikipedia as to increase functionality for users on the Wikiversity project. An example of a template I have successfully imported from Wikipedia is found here, and it allows users to document the source page they pulled a transcluded section from. I still have much to learn about Wiki, and I look forward to exploring these possibilities as a potential technical editor!

I graduated from the University of Chapel Hill with a degree in Psychology, and I currently work as a therapist for children with ASD. It is through this experience, as well as my time with HGAPS, that I have developed insight into the value and power that open source platforms can have. I took statistics courses and coding courses during my time here, and have a good understanding of object-oriented programming.
