In general the role of the H-Survey editorial board is to support and guide H-Survey and its editors. The list co-editors and the review co-editors will call upon the editorial board for specific advice. The board will be asked to suggest people that the co-editors can ask to contribute, offer advice and criticism on the tone and contents of H-Survey, and help resolve any controversies. The editorial board will work with the editors to develop short-term and long-term plans for H-Survey. Board evaluations of H-Survey and of the co-editors will be provided to the H-Net Executive Committee when it evaluates each list annually (which hasn't happened yet). The editorial board will widen the scholarly ken of the co-editors and link H-Survey to scholarly associations and other useful contacts. Board members will promote and "advertise" H-Survey to colleagues to create a diverse community of those teaching the beginning college course(s) in U. S. history. Board members will also have an extensive role in the selection of new editors or replacements on the H-Survey Editorial Board.
How much work is involved? As much or as little as the member wishes. Editorial board duties are not meant to be onerous, and can often amount to little more than monitoring the list. Board members are encouraged to contribute to the quality of the list by participating in ongoing discussions. Board members also should publicize H-Survey and encourage colleagues and friends to sign on, and to contribute. Some board members will get involved in H-Net committees, and some will become co-editors themselves.
Some of the ways in which board members can contribute to H-Survey are outlined below.
