About the Committee

The MIT Press Editorial Board consists of MIT Faculty members. The Director of the Press and a representative of the MIT Libraries are ex-officio members. The Board meets four times each year. In conjunction with the Director of the Press, it is responsible for the editorial quality of the publishing programs at the Press and it advises the Press on editorial matters. The Editorial Board reviews publishing proposals as appropriate, provides guidance to the Press Acquisitions department, participates in the formulation of editorial strategies for both the Books and Journals divisions of the Press, and fosters the exchange of ideas about new developments in scholarly research, especially as they relate to publishing opportunities. Editorial Board members serve as active advocates and ambassadors for the Press and as the advisory board for its Essential Knowledge series.

The MIT Press Editorial Board is a Standing Institute Committee that reports to the Provost.
