University of Texas Press Advisory Committee

The committee met six times to date during the academic year 2006-07. The committee will meet again in May and twice during the summer. The basic format for meetings is the presence of the key staff members of the UT Press along with the committee. Editors present projects for consideration based on reader's reports that have been circulated in advance to the committee members along with the table of contents and a description of the manuscript. Committee members ask questions of the editor, and there is a general discussion as appropriate for the project. The committee then votes on the project, sometimes adding conditions for approval.

The members of the committee are conscientious and review the materials carefully prior to the meetings. There is a good working relationship with the UT Press staff. The committee has no legislation to propose to the Faculty Council.
