"I was very pleased with Han Vermeulen's meticulous work on my article in Fieldwork and Footnotes" (Alan Barnard, Professor of the Anthropology of Southern Africa, University of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK).

"I highly appreciated the valuable assistance given by Han Vermeulen in editing the English translation of the extensive report that formed the centre-piece of the book Guardians of the Land in Kelimado: Louis Fontijne’s Study of a Colonial District in Eastern Indonesia (2004). He also diligently assisted in research contributing to the lengthy ‘Editor’s Introduction,’ especially the section dealing with Fontijne’s life and career" (Gregory Forth, Professor of Anthropology, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada).


"It was a great pleasure to have Han Vermeulen as an editor of two publications of myself and my late husband Franz von Benda-Beckmann. His editorial involvement went far beyond simple improvement of grammar and included valuable suggestions to strengthen the argument and flow of thought" (Keebet von Benda-Beckmann, Professor Emeritus, University of Rotterdam, The Netherlands, University of Leipzig and University of Halle-Wittenberg, Germany).
