  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose For now. It's unclear what experience listed above is medically related. Is editor/printer experience with a newspaper, journal or magazine? Online or paper? What does IHD stand for? What area of historical research? T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 11:33, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I concur -- I can't gauge degree of experience with scholarly publication from the application materials. I wonder if the person intended to apply for the Wiki Journal of Humanities? That appears like it would be a better potential match for the content area and skills, although it still would be helpful to have documentation of prior experience with peer review and scholarly publication.
