Revision as of 18:39, 19 June 2010

The Dryad Consortium Board involves journals in governance of the repository. The DCB is currently operating under an Interim Governance Agreement, which will be renewed/revised annually until a permanent governance plan is adopted (planned for January 2012).

Under current rules, the DCB consists of one appointed representative from each partner journal. Each journal has one vote in matters brought to the board. The full board elects an executive committee of five journal representatives, including the project director. The executive committee is authorized to make most decisions on behalf of the full board, but issues regarding partner financial commitments and governance must be brought to the full board.

Other journals are welcome to join meetings of the board and express their opinion in discussion, but do not have formal voting rights.
