Publication of the Constitution Document

The major outcome from the Task Force of the Editors' Club is the production of a “Constitution Document”, the Background, Rationale and Mission Statement of the “Editors’ Club”, written in order to set the basis of future collaboration among NSCJ Editors.

The target was to produce and issue a core document with fundamental principles upon which all NSCJ Editors would agree. Common goals have been identified and agreed-on measures will be pursued. This constitution document is therefore a formalisation the NSCJ Editors´ Club Task Force.

During the summer of 2008 this constitution document was published simultaneous in the majority of the NSCJ in English and/or national language. This is the first time a publication of this character has been carried out, and with great success and interest.

Some NSCJ published in both the national language and in English, others chose a web-based publication supported by a comment article in their printed version, while others went to the extent of issuing a supplement entirely dedicated to the article. The Task Force is very grateful to the NSCJ Editors for the amount of involvement and dedication in the project!
