LIST SIGNIFICANT ACTIVITIES THE COMMITTEE HAS DONE SINCE LAST REPORT:
The new editorial board started the work right after the appointments of the chairperson/English Editor and the editorial board members were announced in July 2008. This is a very strong editorial board; everyone is very capable, supportive, collaborative, and committed to the work. Busy with many other professional commitments, everyone has demonstrated genuine efforts to keep JLIS work moving forward – from soliciting manuscripts to recruiting referees, to manuscript review process. The editorial board also focused on improving the process to make the editorial work more systematic and efficient in the future. Briefly listed below please find what we have achieved thus far:
Appointment/reappointment decisions for the chairperson and members of CALA JLIS Editorial Board should be made at least six months before the beginning of their new terms to ensure continuation and transition for the editorial work.
Action Item for the Board: Reappointment of editorial board member
The chairperson would like to recommend to CALA Board of Directors of the reappointment of Dr. Mark Winston as member of the CALA JLIS Editorial Board. His new three-year term will start from July 2009.
