Application of Thomas Shafee

Thomas Shafee PhD, MA(cantab) (website)

Relevant experience:

Professional - I've no humanities experience. Since my expertise aren't relevant to the journal's scope, I would operate as an adviser only and not make editorial decisions.
Publishing - I've been on the Wiki.J.Med editorial board for over a year, particularly focusing on formatting and expansion. I also run the Topic Page review format for PLOS Genetics. I hope to therefore be helpful in getting the journal up and running based on these experiences.
Open - I have been active on Wikipedia since 2013 and have helped to bring a few articles to GA and FA status. I teach Wikipedia editing workshops for academics (PDF) and I've also helped organise an extended editathon on biographies of women Antarctic researchers.

I confirm that I will act in accordance with the policies of the WikiJournal of Humanities. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 02:10, 21 October 2017 (UTC) (UTC)
