Journal call for papers

Call for Book Chapters

Our cultural authority

Cultural authority is earned, not granted. At Day One this journal will have no authority however we have invested in the very best chiropractors globally who will earn our authority through their work.

Our Editorial Board is structured with Section Editors, each an expert in their field, plus Community Representatives and a voice from our students. We welcome associations accepting the Asia-Pac Chiropr J and submitting news and updates they would like to publish for members. We look forward to working with the librarians, our heroes, at chiropractic institutions by being listed as a 'chiropractic resource'; our indexing is with the Index to Chiropractic literature 

The Section Editor is the person assigned to bring a manuscript to fruition. They are already incredibly busy people and for this reason we want our authors and creators to be as close to the ideal paper as they can be on submission. It is the role of the Editor, Prof Phillip Ebrall, to help achieve this.

The sections, and their editors, are:

  • Research: RIP Dr Dave Russell (BSc (psych), BSc (Chiropr), Cert TT)
  • Education: Dr Brian Kelly (BAppSci(Chiropr))
  • Case Reports: Dr Joel Alcantara, DC, PhD(Cand)
  • Community: Dr Jennifer Luu, BSc(Pharmacology), BHSc(Chiro), MClinChiro
  • Business: Dr Michel Tetrault, DC
  • Clinical: Dr Scott Cuthbert, BA, DC
  • Paediatrics: Dr Matt Doyle, BSc (Neuro), BAppSc, BChiroSc, MSc AP Paed Chiro, GCTEd, PhD (Cand)
  • History: Dr Gary Bovine, DC

  • Philosophy: Prof Phillip Ebrall, MPhotog, BAppSc Chiropr,PhD, GCert (Tert Learn Teach), DC(Hon)

The Editorial Board also has community members from various countries.
