After 2 years, and 3 rounds of peer review, my landmark global Delphi for 2030 has been published. See the URL link to: Gary, J. E., & von der Gracht, H. A. (2015, August). The future of foresight professionals: Results from a global Delphi study. Futures, 71, 132-145.

From 2009 to 2011 I served as the regional editor of Foresight, the journal of future studies, strategic thinking and policy.
