Glenn Hymel, Ed.D, L.M.T., professor of psychology in the College of Humanities and Natural Sciences, has recently published two textbooks, “Research Methods for Massage and Holistic Therapies” and “Clinical Massage in the Healthcare Setting,” published by Elsevier/Mosby Publishing.

Hymel is also currently serving as the founding executive editor of the International Journal of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork: Research, Education and Practice. The inaugural issue was launched last August, with a follow-up issue in December.

The journal is a peer-reviewed, open access journal published by Multimed Inc., a Canadian-based international medical-publishing and marketing corporation in Milton, Ontario.

Hymel spearheaded the planning and development of the journal over the past four years through the Massage Therapy Foundation based in Evanston, Ill.

Starting this year, the journal will be published quarterly in March, June, September and December.

The journal can be viewed online at www.ijtmb.org.
