ACM SGB Meeting Materials February 5, 2007
Should we engage with the Pubs Board in a discussion about the fact that an Editor can put into place some pretty radical policies? They almost have unlimited power. Is it the role of the editorial board to check into these things? Ramakrishnan would like the editorial board to have to vote in terms of policy changes. He suggested that the pubs board discuss this.
