Map of London: Editorial Board
Editorial board members prioritize pages to be completed, suggest contributors and referees, pass on titles for the bibliography, offer comments on contributor guidelines and MoEML stylesheets, help establish editorial policy for the transcription and annotation of texts about London, and occasionally vet potential contributions. MoEML intends to establish a fairly large editorial board of about 25 members, within which there will be several clusters of disciplinary and technical expertise. The following people have generously agreed to become members of the inaugural editorial board. Other board members will be announced shortly.
