Education scholar’s leading role in academic journal wins international recognition

教育學者領導學術期刊成就獲國際學術組織肯定

World Leisure Journal (WLJ), an international academic journal on leisure studies led by Professor Atara Sivan, Associate Dean of Social Sciences and Professor of the Department of Education Studies, has been accepted into Scopus, one of the world’s largest abstract and citation databases of peer-reviewed scientific journals and other literature. 

Professor Sivan has been serving as the Editor-in-Chief of WLJ for the past four years. Reviewers commend WLJ as “An excellent journal; excellent, well-crafted, well-cited, interesting and containing informative papers”. 

Professor Sivan feels proud of this achievement and regards this recognition as a good and stable step forward. She said, “I am grateful for the ongoing support from the Department of Education Studies and the Faculty of Social Sciences which has allowed me the space to make this great contribution. As a dedicated scholar, I pledge to continue undertaking this leadership role which will contribute both to the field of study and the internationalisation of our university.”

教育學系蘇秀冠教授領導的學術期刊《世界休閒期刊》獲Scopus納入為成員刊物。Scopus為全球最大同儕評鑑的學術文章索引摘要資料庫之一。

蘇秀冠教授擔任《世界休閒期刊》總編輯已經四年,而該期刊得到評鑑員的極高評價,包括「卓越的期刊、精雕細啄、高水平的引用、刊載的論文趣味及資訊性兼備」。

蘇秀冠教授對獲此肯定感到自豪,並認為是期刊發展的重要一大步。她說:「我感謝教育學系和社會科學院一直以來的支持,讓我有足夠的空間對學術研究作出貢獻。作為學者,我承諾會繼續肩負領導者的責任,為學術發展及大學國際化作出貢獻。」
