Industry Perspectives & Book Reviews

The following papers provide industry perspectives and/or academic discussions that do not conform to standard academic requirements for publication in the JOSRE, but may still merit reading. They may be lacking an appropriate literature review which puts the discussion in context; they may provide advocacy and viewpoints which are opinion based on experience without sufficient empirical proof for an academic review but they still contain valuable advice and perspectives which is why we have decided to set up this section of the journal. We may at some time allow counterpoints and discussions and if you wish to submit alternative views for this section please let us know. The papers will be listed chronologically with the most recent on top.
