CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
HAIB publishes peer-reviewed innovative, original, high-quality research articles including empirical and evidence-based methods (e.g., clinical, experimental and applied research), quantitative/empirical work, small sample size & single subject investigations, epidemiologic, and qualitative and descriptive investigations. In order to make the bulletin accessible to both practitioners and scientific researchers, contributions are encouraged from the broad spectrum of investigative techniques utilized by the social sciences and humanities.
All submissions to the bulletin undergo a blind review process, and those selected for publication are distributed electronically. We encourage interested researchers to submit a paper and be among the first to publish in this exciting new outlet for human-animal interaction research! Once submitted, we strive to provide authors feedback pertaining to publication decisions quickly.
We strongly believe that the open access format of Human-Animal Interaction Bulletin has clear benefits for the field of HAI. Open access means that all articles are free and universally accessible online at no cost. This widespread availability of articles significantly enhances readership, citations, and more importantly the rapid dissemination of information. We hope that unlimited access to the latest information on Human Animal Interaction research published in Human-Animal Interaction Bulletin will allow for a more rapid sharing of ideas providing for greater cross fertilization of those ideas in the various disciplines examining the topic.
NO PUBLICATION COSTS TO AUTHORS
We currently do no charge publication fees to authors. We recognize that this approach may not be sustainable long-term, but our immediate action plan calls for no publication fees.
RAPID TURN-AROUND TIME
Because everything is processed online we are able to carry out a rapid review process followed by a quick publication timeline.
PHOTOS & GRAPHICS ARE ENCOURAGED
Print journals are forced to limit the inclusion of this type of material, but we have no such limitations. We encourage authors to use visual aids that best relay the important characteristics of their study.
We encourage the HAI community to make full use of this very welcome new resource. For more information please visit – http://www.apa.org/divisions/div17/sections/sec13
