However, the Shenton Park “Institute” is the animal shelter in which she lived as a pup, and there is no College of Veterinary Science in Subiaco. Her expertise in canine studies comes strictly from her skill, experience, and training (not to mention her instincts) as a five-year-old Staffordshire Terrier, AKA Ollie.
Nevertheless, this tongue-in-jowl record was sufficient to induce the following flaky academic journals to add the pit bull from Perth to their editorial boards:
■ *EC Pulmonary and Respiratory Medicine, Echronicon Open AccessOllie's exploits received international coverage in newspapers and in Science in May. Yet, Dr. Doll remains on the websites of the journals marked with an asterisk (accessed November 18, 2017). I do not know if she is still reviewing papers for the Journal of Community Medicine and Public Health Care, for that journal does not list names of editors or reviewers.
■ Journal of Community Medicine and Public Health Care, Herald Scholarly Open Access
■ Journal of Tobacco Stimulated Diseases, Peertechz
■ Journal of Alcohol and Drug Abuse, SMGroup
■ Alzheimer’s and Parkinsonism: Research and Therapy, SMGroup
■ *Journal of Psychiatry and Mental Disorders, Austin Publishing Group
■ *Global Journal of Addiction and Rehabilitation Medicine (Associate Editor), Juniper Publishers
■ Austin Addiction Sciences, Austin Publishing Group
The SMGroup journals now are presented as coming from JSMCentral (discussed on this blog), which "was initiated as an independent, peer reviewed, Open Access publishing organization with a mission ... to top a revolution in research education among the global scientific community."
