Abstract

This edited publication provides a useful record of the discussions had on the basis of papers commissioned, which have now been converted, through a double-blind peer review process, into book chapters. The revision allowed academics to update their thoughts and reflect on the issues raised during the academic forum meeting. The improved quality in the contributions must be ascribed to the opportunity that authors had to reflect deeply on their initial thoughts with the help of comments from reviewers. Fortunately, no revised chapter was found to be of such a state that it would not be publishable. A proceedings report providing a synthesis of presentations and interactive discussions was published before the Academic Forum held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in March 2014.
