Publications of various forms are an important forum to share
knowledge, educate peers and the public, initiate discussion, invite
collaboration, call old paradigms into question, archive information,
or to announce findings and discoveries. Publications are
divided into three the categories as below.
HRC staff have authored or collaborated on nearly 100 refereed journal
articles. Refereed journals require a peer review process which helps
to ensure validity and scientific integrity of research submitted for
publication. Journal editors select 3 or more scientists from the same
or related discipline to independently and anonymously evaluate the
merit, accuracy, logic and originality of a submitted article. The
reviewers are not affiliated with the journal. Their recommendations,
suggestions, and/or reservations are submitted to the editor. The reviews are then
forwarded to the author or authors, who must
sufficiently address the reviewers comments. The cycle is repeated until
the editor is satisfied and agrees to publish.
Contributions to Books and Special Issues:
HRC staff have been invited to submit numerous chapters and articles to
books and special issues of research journals.
HRC publishes its own technical reports for internal
distribution. Copies can be obtained by contacting HRC.
