Tamara Valovich McLeod, PhD, ATC, FNATA, associate professor, Athletic Training program, has been invited to serve as a section editor for the Journal of Athletic Training (JAT). JAT is the flagship journal for the athletic training profession and one of the most respected journals in sports medicine.
Dr. McLeod is one of only 13 section editors. Section editors are assigned to broad topical areas, and Dr. McLeod will serve in the “Examination, Treatment, and Rehabilitation” section. As section editor, her responsibility will be to coordinate peer review for submitted articles relevant to her section and make final recommendations to the editor-in-chief about the acceptability of an article for publication.
“She replaces Dr. Kevin Guskiewicz of the University of North Carolina, who just last fall received a MacArthur Genius Award,” said John T. Parsons, PhD, ATC, AT, associate professor and director, Athletic Training program.” Obviously, this is a prestigious appointment reserved for those scholars with excellent national and international reputations in research.”
