Publication and Speakers Working Group
Charge from ICCC
The Publications Policy and Interim Speakers' Bureau WG is to draft the CMB-S4 collaboration bylaws that pertain to the policies and procedures that govern CMB-S4 publications and the Speakers’ Bureau. Specifically, the WG is charged to:
- Draft an interim publication policy (covering topics including, but not limited to, authorship, authorship order, mechanisms for reviewing author list, and mechanisms for reviewing papers) to begin operating right away. This policy should be concrete enough to guide decisions on actual publications in the near term but flexible enough to accommodate inevitable changes as the collaboration matures.
- Draft a basic interim Speakers Bureau policy to begin operating right away, with a system of notifying the collaboration about opportunities to present project work, approving members to represent the project in talks, and generating a set of slides about the project that are available for any collaboration member to use.
- Propose methods of establishing a Publications Panel and a Speakers Bureau.
- Propose methods of insuring that the policies are followed.
- Propose a mechanism for revising publication policy and Speaker Bureau responsibilities in the bylaws.
