Interested in becoming a member of our Editorial Review Board?
Here at The Professional Counselor (TPC), we seek to strengthen the profession of counseling through the publication of innovative manuscripts. Published articles are a vital resource for counselors, educators, students, other mental health professionals, and the general public.
We pride ourselves on a robust peer review process with experts from across the profession serving as our reviewers. TPC Editorial Review Board members are required to have a doctoral degree and maintain the National Certified Counselor (NCC) certification.
TPC peer reviewers come from many different backgrounds and are constantly bringing new insight to the table. Our Editorial Review Board currently represents either native or descendant individuals from more than 10 countries, including China, Ghana, Greece, Honduras, India, Italy, Mexico, Serbia, Taiwan, and the United States, and we are excited to continue expanding that pool of experience and knowledge. At this time, we are especially interested in adding more reviewers with expertise and personal experience with non-dominant, underrepresented populations.
The Editorial Review Board reviews manuscripts for potential publication and provides feedback for TPC editors and authors. The feedback assists the editors in determining the outcome of the initial manuscript review, and it is also sent directly to the authors to assist them in the revision process. Peer reviewers receive a manuscript review every one to two months on average and are expected to return the completed review within 30 days.
Hours spent reviewing manuscripts are a representation of your devotion to counseling leadership service and can be reported and considered for certification and licensure requirements. Additional continuing education opportunities also become available from time to time.
