Catch up on and Contribute to the JIOA

Dear IOA Colleagues,

The Journal of the International Ombuds Association (JIOA) has been busy this year!  Please visit our website if you have not done so recently.  There are new articles and book reviews posted. 

Additionally, if you are looking to contribute to the field, we accept a wide array of article types on a wide array of ombuds-related topics.  These different options include Research and Scholarship Features, Innovations in Practice, Research in Brief, Interviews, Case Challenges, Policy Features, Educational Features and Q&A with Luminaries in the Field.  We are also in the process of accepting  manuscripts for two special issues: one that focuses on the intersection of Ombuds and DEIB and one that honors the work of Mary Rowe. If you would like to know more and how you might contribute as a scholar, practitioner or scholar-practitioner, please reach out to us at [email protected].

The JIOA also accepts Media Reviews.  These can be from something that you have read/watched recently or you can request one of the books that we have available (and will send to you at no cost to you).  The books that we have available for review can be found here:  Unfortunately, we are unable to ship outside of the United States at this time.

We continue to look for new manuscript reviewers.  If you are interested in reviewing for the JIOA, please complete our application here: Finally, we promote both our articles and our authors on Twitter.  If you have not connected with us on Twitter, you can do so by following us at @OmbudsJournal.

Please consider contributing to the JIOA in the coming year.  If you have any questions about our process or have an idea you want to talk through, contact us at [email protected].

Best Wishes,

Shannon Lynn Burton, PhD

Editor, JIOA
