Nicholas F. Skinner: Retirement

nicholas_skinner_400

 

It is with some sadness that we farewell Dr. Nicholas F. Skinner, a constant presence through the life of SBP Journal! After 45 years of teaching and research in psychology, Dr. Skinner retired at the end of June 2017 from his position as Professor of Psychology at King’s University College at Western University, Canada.

Our connection with Dr. Skinner began with our very first issue, published in 1973, and has continued with a further 14 works published in SBP Journal over the years. We were also honored to receive Dr. Skinner’s generous testimony to mark the journal’s 40th anniversary in 2012, regarding his “unfailingly positive experience” with our journal.

Now, on the occasion of his retirement, it is our privilege to return the favor and say what a pleasure it has been to work with Dr. Skinner, ever professional and personable over these 45 years! Congratulations, Nick, on reaching this milestone, and thank you, from all of us at SBP Journal.

Dr. Skinner’s backcatalog of articles published in our journal (listed below in chronological order) will be available on our website via open access for the month of August, and we encourage you to read his insightful research on topics such as Machiavellianism, extraversion, and adaption–innovation.
