Books Editorial Committee

The Books Editorial Committee (BEC) is a sub-committee of the Publications and Information Committee which is a standing committee of Council, and is responsible for the scientific quality control of all Society (and co-published) books.

The BEC is composed of Society Books Editors and Books Advisory Editors. The Chair of the BEC (The Books Chief Editor) is an ex-officio member of the PIC. Each volume has an individual Society Books Editor assigned to it, but the main point of contact should be the Head of Editorial Development, David Boyt.
