Louise Dalingwater is a Professor of British Politics at Sorbonne Université. She was recruited in September 2019 to further interdisciplinary research between the Humanities and Medical Sciences. Her current research focuses on health policy and healthcare delivery in the United Kingdom, with some comparative research on European health systems (notably France) and global health policy research. Recent publications include a book on the UK service economy (Les services britanniques au 21e siècle: une étude interdisciplinaire, Presses universitaires de Nancy) and The NHS and Contemporary Health Challenges From a Multilevel Perspective (IG Global) and several chapters and papers on public health services. She is part of the Precision Health Network (an international research project led by the Universities of Lund and Malmo in Sweden).
Articles published in The International Journal of Health, Wellness, and Society are peer-reviewed by scholars who are active members of the Health, Wellness, & Society Research Network. Common Ground Research Networks uses a two-way anonymous peer review system. The publisher, editors, reviewers, and authors all agree upon the standards of expected ethical behavior as based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Core Practices. Reviewers may be past or present conference delegates, fellow submitters to the collection, or scholars who have volunteered to referee articles and have been screened by Common Ground’s editorial team. This engagement with the Research Network, as well as Common Ground’s synergistic and criterion-based evaluation system, distinguishes our peer review process from others.
Serving as a Member Volunteer Peer Reviewer is a great way to begin your path to the journal's Editorial Board. If you are not already on our list of Member Volunteer Peer Reviewers, please consider joining.
We also offer the opportunity to join the Editorial Board of qualified reviewers and content evaluators. Editorial Board members are expected to complete a minimum of 5 reviews per calendar year. We are happy to work with graduate students, too – an excellent professional development opportunity as our Editorial team helps educate on the nature of the role, process, and rigors of peer review.
Alongside the important role of reviewing research and helping to guide the direction of the collection, there are other benefits of joining the Editorial Board: Official Recognition Letter / Certificate; recognition of role on the website, email, and social media communication; CGScholar credit that can be used for any offerings provided in any one of Common Ground Research Networks.
