TRIBE project: GIVING VOICE
On 24 February 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine bringing only death and destruction. Each of us, particularly the academic community feels a unique responsibility in this conflict. The experience of the Croatian Medical Journal (CMJ)
editors during and after the 1991-1995 war in Croatia shows how one scientific journal can help in times of war. The CMJ published scientific articles on various aspects of war medicine, documented cases of war crimes and human rights abuses, and by doing so told a story of human resilience, resourcefulness, and ability to resist during Homeland war in Croatia.
The directors of the postgraduate doctoral program Translational Research in Biomedicine together with the editors of ST OPEN
journal want to use that experience and offer their expertise and assistance in writing and publishing war-related research and reports to Ukrainian authors that are currently not in a position to devote their time to publishing or to those that lack experience in publishing. We are planning to achieve that by reaching out to Ukrainian authors, connecting them with our team of experts, and publishing their experiences in the ST-OPEN
supplement devoted to War in Ukraine. Because ST OPEN
is an interdisciplinary journal we seek contributions from various scientific fields. Besides articles on war medicine, war crimes, and human right breach we are looking for articles on the economic consequences of war, changes, and adaptations of educational processes, destruction of cultural heritage, social consequences, and many others but above all we want to give voice to those whose voices are often not heard loud enough, those that do not belong to academic elites; students, refugees, unprivileged groups, and others whose lives were disrupted by war.
To achieve this goal, we are looking for collaborators that will help us in making a network of experts that will establish contact with the Ukrainian academic community. Through that network, we will get in touch with Ukrainian authors, select interesting topics for publications, review their data, connect them with our team of experts, and publish their experiences in a supplement devoted to the War in Ukraine. Our help will include help in translation to English language, statistical editing, writing, language editing, and everything necessary for making obtained data publishable.
