Introducing the Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation’s new Technical Editor

It is my distinct pleasure to introduce the new Technical Editor for the Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation (JVR), Ms. Carina Rumrill, M.A. As some of you know, the previous Technical Editor, Dr. Hannah Seward, has moved on to post-doctoral studies and we are extremely fortunate to have Carina, who is an experienced free-lance writer.

Carina is a seasoned communications professional, author, and editor with more than 15 years of experience as Managing Editor for an international non-governmental organization that disseminates its work through a print magazine, blogs, digital news, eZine, website materials, and donor and annual reports. She has authored more than 1,200 articles in various digital and print formats. Prior to this work, she served as Operations Director and Board Member for a non-profit project that guided 20,000 incarcerated individuals in their pursuit of psychosocial and spiritual well-being. Carina also has experience in business management and advertising as Chef/Owner and Operator of a critically acclaimed food truck and pop-up restaurant in Portland, Oregon.

As the Journal enters its thirty-second year and with a strong partnership with APSE, we will continue six issues a year, which we will target for employment research, meaningful scoping and systematic literature reviews, case studies, periodic discussion papers and special issues. To that end, what follows is a joint Editorial led by Tim Tansey, Ph.D. and a collaboration of three other leading rehabilitation journals with JVR: Rehabilitation Counselors and Educators Journal; Rehabilitation Research, Policy, and Education; and Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin.

These journals will be releasing papers concurrently on quality employment for persons with significant disabilities in the first two months of 2023 and they will be available through open access due to the relationships Dr. Tansey has with U.S. Rehabilitation Services Administration funding.

We hope you will enjoy the approximately 25 articles in these four issues. The following Guest Editorial by Dr. Tansey provides more detail about these papers and background.

Thank you for supporting JVR and APSE as we continue to be grateful for your feedback and support.
