The Editorial Board advises the editors on issues of publishing ethics; peer reviews of submitted manuscripts; and suggestions of reviewers of submitted manuscripts and published books and other appropriate media. The Editors seek to assemble a Board that represents the demographic, geographic, and scholarly diversity of NAISA’s membership.
Board terms are four years and are staggered so that approximately one quarter of the Board cycles off each year.
Applications for Board seats are accepted each year – see below for more information.
