  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. I also found an external site at [1]. Although I don't see any significant history of wiki contribution, I see lots of useful expertise in academic publishing in general. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 17:30, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. I think your expertise will be an added value. I would however strongly suggest to create a Wikimedia account for future use. Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 19:59, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. The addition of academic nursing expertise the the editorial board would be very useful. The board covers wiki skills well enough that I think broader open access or collaborative experience is now as useful as specific wiki experience. Agree that creating an account would be advisable.

Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral -- I support you as an Associate Editor. Although you clearly have very valuable wiki experience, I find your academic track record, although valuable, not entirely convincing enough for election to the Board. We have had discussions about the number of full Editors and at this moment, it might seem better for the journal, as my personal opinion, to elect you as an Associate Editor with strong consideration for moving up to the Board at a later stage. --Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 20:11, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
