How do editorial boards function?

Creation and oversight of content for each Focus Area is provided by an Editorial Board made up of OASIS members. The Editorial Board may be organized as a function of:
  • one OASIS Technical Committee or Adoption Committee
  • several related Committees
  • an Adoption Subcommittee
  • a Joint Committee
  • a Member Section
Participation in an Editorial Board is open to any OASIS member interested in actively advancing the use of OASIS Standards. sites are designed to be self-sustaining, with new content added by the community and old content automatically archived. The primary role of the Editorial Board is to:
  • develop and maintain the Wiki Knowledgebase of background information on the standard;
  • help ensure that contributions to the site adhere to the Editorial Guidelines and;
  • promote the use of the site within the international community.
Editorial Board members may also volunteer to translate portions of the Focus Area into other languages.

Editorial Board members agree to actively participate in the creation and oversight of the site. International representation is encouraged; those who are unable to attend Board conference calls because of time zone or language barriers may still serve on Editorial Boards and actively participate in the review and maintenance of content.
