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)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Welcome aboard! Having an editor with expertise in continental shelf oceanography (small scale) would be great! Have you an interest in editing and contributing to articles on Wikipedia regarding various continental shelves large and small? --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 23:19, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think more information would be useful on this. Could you summarise the aims and achievements so for of wikiletters? Your works as listed by Google Scholar look interesting. Are your teaching activities in the same topics? What languages do you code in? T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 11:30, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

Editorial board application of Roger M. Rosewall[edit source]

Relevant experience:

Professional - 30+ years professional employment

Open - Currently using MediaWiki to collaborate on a Raytheon project

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

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)
  • 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?

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Most of your experience appears to be with Wireless Sensor Networks which would be great to have available! If there are Wikipedia articles that you believe could benefit from being reviewed for the WikiJournal of Science, I hope you will consider suggesting submittal to their contributors. --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 02:55, 5 April 2021 (UTC)
  • FYI: @Evolution and evolvability: (Editor-in-Chief) --Alaa :)..! 12:02, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think that it would be ideal to have some more information. E.g. for teaching, how long & what topics. Are you still involved in research since your phd? For research, is there anything in addition your the items listed on ORCID that people should be aware of? (also, thank you to علاء for pinging me). T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 11:41, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
    • Symbol support vote.svg Support Thank you for the updated details on the application. That seems to be highly useful mix of academic and technical work and an expertise range that complements the current board's topics well. Wikimedia admin experience is, or course, always a valuable skillset to have bon board as well. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 11:05, 25 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Your experience on Wireless Sensor Networks is interesting and would be very welcome in the team. I agree with Thomas Shafee that it would be nice to have some more information about your research; and if possible a website link. Chiswick Chap (discusscontribs) 07:49, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
