New Editor of the Social Welfare Group

The Campbell Collaboration Social Welfare Coordinating Group would like to announce that Dr Nick Huband is now Editor of the Social Welfare Coordinating Group.

Nick comes to us with considerable experience in systematic reviewing and has been an active member of the Social Welfare Group, specifically in terms of support on editorial issues.

Nick is a veteran author of many systematic reviews in the area of mental health, including one collaborative effort with SWCG Co-chair Jane Barlow which won the 2011 Campbell Social Welfare Leonard Gibbs Award. He has over fifteen years' clinical experience in a variety of mental health settings including as a nurse therapist, and has also coordinated an important randomized controlled trial on a psychological treatment for people diagnosed with personality disorder. Nick has supplied valuable peer review and technical writing work for the C2 SW Group, and has an interest in the construction of structured abstracts and Plain Language Summaries of completed reviews.

Personally, Nick has been described as a man of thoroughness, gentleness and humour, ideally suited to fostering review authors' progress.

We would like to welcome Nick to The Campbell Collaboration!
