JCB to Infinity and Beyond: A Personal Recollection and Recommendation
Simonton, Dean Keith
Journal of Creative Behavior, v51 n4 p314-316 Dec 2017
The author starts by narrating his personal experiences with the "Journal of Creative Behavior". Although the author began publishing his creativity research in 1975, he did not submit his first manuscript until 1981, 14 years after JCB's founding--a manuscript that was finally published in 1983 without ever being formally accepted! The author then turns to the events leading up to his assumption of the journal's editorship in 1993, describing the editorial endeavor that lasted until 1999. He concludes by discussing the aftermath, including the tremendous growth in publication opportunities for creativity research. That proliferation then inspires the recommendation that JCB continue to be considered a principal vehicle for all creativity researchers.
