About the book

Volunteerism is a key quality of life factor that promotes diversity, inclusion, and, most of all, democracy. People who volunteer gain significant knowledge of themselves and their skills, others, community, and government. They also display empathy and change the course of life for others. Volunteerism is more than kindness; it is altruism in action. Whether the individual is donating their time at a soup kitchen or food bank, or a political campaign, or merely donating money through a gofundme project, the individual makes a difference in the many lives supported by the cause. This book captures the constructs of volunteerism and how it promotes diversity, inclusion, and democracy. The contributors are experts in research on volunteerism and how it benefits society overall. Readers can expect evidence-based information on how volunteerism can improve the quality of living for varied communities. Volunteerism is a proponent of a healthy democracy.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

M.Sc. Iva Ribic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
