About the JBCCP

The Joint Board-Council Committee on Publications (JBCCP) is one of the 13 committees that report both to the Board and to the Council of ACS.

The Governing Board for Publishing has the general responsibility and authority for the operations and performance of ACS Publications Division except for the appointment of editors and editorial content of journals and magazines.

“The Joint Board-Council Committees may have members and committee associates other than Councilors. Appointments to Joint Board-Council Committees are arranged so as to provide rotation. One member is appointed each year by the ACS President, one member is appointed by the Chair of the ACS board, and all other members are appointed jointly, with the advice of the Committee on Committees. Each Joint Board-Council Committee may have any Board-Council Committees serve a term of three years and are permitted up to three consecutive three-year terms on the same committee.

Joint Board-Council Committees are responsible to the ACS Board on all matters related to fiscal and legal issues, and to both the ACS Board and Council on all other matters. These committees report to the Council Policy Committee, the Council, and the ACS Board at their respective meetings.”
