  • They seem a good candidate for assoc editor status, and it would be useful experience for them as well as helpful skills for us. We've been a bit stalled on applications over the last year, so it will be good to get organised again. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 11:59, 11 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree. I made an entry on the user's talk page whether he's still interested. If so, I think we can go ahead and approve this application. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 15:52, 16 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pending more specific presentation. I'm tending towards support, as the applicant seems active in research and publishing according to orcid ([1]). I think it is appropriate to let him join us. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 03:12, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Dr. Moscote-Salazar, some questions that have been raised are:
  • Would you be able to provide a webpage or other presentation about yourself? The link provided ( directs to a more general website.
  • Could you provide one or two sentences of what motivates you to join WikiJMed?
  • Would you be willing to begin contributing as an associate editor? The tasks can be described here: WikiJournal_of_Medicine/Associate_editors. We feel we can really need some help with peer review coordination, and you'll have the opportunity to later become promoted to editorial board membership.

WikiJournal of Science editorial applications

Professional - 30+ years professional employment

I confirm that I will act in accordance with the policies of the WikiJournal of Science. Rosewall2020 (discusscontribs) 15:51, 6 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Additional note: "My systems engineering experience is fairly broad, but I claim particular domain expertise in defense, intelligence, and homeland security." - Roger M. Rosewall by email
Additional note: "As a volunteer organization, INCOSE depends on the time and effort graciously contributed by individuals like yourself, supported by your organization, to make its programs a success. Through this leadership, we develop and share information that improves the practice of systems engineering by member individuals and their companies. Again, thank you for your time and commitment to INCOSE and the Systems Engineering community." - Excerpt from thankyou letter forwarded by Roger M. Rosewall by email
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support We occasionally get submissions using applied systems that may need your expertise and review. I hope you would be willing to do this. When you write "using MediaWiki to collaborate on a Raytheon project" I assume you mean the Raytheon DOMino program. Have you uploaded a copy of MediaWiki for this use or are you using the WMF projects? Have you considered contributing to the various Wikipedia articles on Systems Engineering? --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 02:29, 5 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Certainly we could do with some more engineering knowledge on board and appreciate that professional engineering generates different outputs than academic engineering. Some more information would be useful though, e.g.: What does being a reviewer for INCOSE entail? Do you maintain a broad systems engineering knowledge or are you specialised in a particular aspect? T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 11:37, 18 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I agree with the other editor comments and would love to hear more about INCOSE. --Saguaromelee (discusscontribs) 17:23, 9 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Not enough detail in the application, not enough reactivity to the questions here. Apply again when more experienced with MediaWiki? Sylvain Ribault (discusscontribs) 20:53, 13 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I agree with Sylvain Ribault. There is very little evidence to support open experience aside from "using MediaWiki to collaborate on a Raytheon project", which I would assume is military-related and closed access. That example demonstrates poor (or mis)understanding of the open movement. This individual had no meaningful contribution on WMF projects. OhanaUnitedTalk page 19:55, 17 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Roger has certainly worked collaboratively at INCOSE, where he has played a significant role. That organization shares meta-knowledge (engineering process knowledge) across national boundaries from what are often otherwise confidential projects, which are themselves highly collaborative within their supply chains, often involving multiple tiers of contractors and sub-contractors to meet client requirements. Roger will be an asset to the editorial team. Ian Alexander (discusscontribs) 11:40, 22 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am aware of the nascent psychology WikiJournal, which I could potentially switch to later, but my research sits between psychology and neuroscience in a sense, and also I do meta-science research which might fit best with WikiJournal of Science?

--Aoholcombe (discusscontribs) 05:21, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. Alex has the passion and I believe will greatly contribute to the editorial board. OhanaUnitedTalk page 20:04, 13 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. A stack of relevant experience - particularly in the early stages of journal establishment. I'd similarly be happy to see them on an editorial board, so I have no hesitation in supporting an assoc editor application. They'd be welcome to additionally join, ore more over to, the in prep psych journal once it's finally up and running. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 01:13, 21 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
