Dunya Nuaimi, The Publishing Process: Notes from the Editorial Side

(This presentation was a part of CIIS Multiversity February 2008)

As one of the founding editors of the peer-reviewed, online, academic journal, OCHRE: Journal of Women’s Spirituality (, Dunya Nuaimi will provide an inside perspective on the editorial process. For three years, Dunya worked with students, faculty and administration at CIIS to develop and publish the introductory issue of the Journal. Using examples from OCHRE, she will discuss how a piece moves from submission to final publication. While the focus will be on online journals, much of the content is relevant to print publications. It is hoped that students will leave with a better understanding of the publishing process, better prepared and inspired to publish their work.

Dunya Nuaimi is currently completing her Master's degree in Philosophy and Religion, Women's Spirituality. She was one of the co-founders and Editorial Directors of the introductory issue of the CIIS OCHRE: Journal of Women’s Spirituality, a peer-reviewed, online, academic journal. She holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Occupational Therapy from McGill University in Canada. Previously, she has worked in the non-profit, educational, and health care sectors, with people who have experienced trauma or other significant life challenges, as an occupational therapist, group facilitator, and administrator. Her current passion is using the expressive arts for positive change in individuals and communities. She currently works at the International Museum of Women.
