New CAS Literature Review Board Will Centralize CAS Peer Review

03/01/2017 —

The CAS is pleased to announce the formation of the CAS Literature Review Board (LRB), a group that will provide peer-review services for any CAS publication requiring it (e.g., Variance, CAS monographs and certain call paper programs). The LRB will allow the CAS to deliver peer-review options to a larger selection of CAS publications through a more centralized system. The LRB also will be responsible for improving the peer-review process while maintaining the high quality that the current reviewers provide for publications such as Variance and monographs.

“The creation of the Literature Review Board is a step that openly recognizes the important and great work that CAS peer reviewers have provided throughout the life of the CAS,” said Eugene Connell, FCAS, chair of the Literature Review Board. “Offering peer review to a greater number and variety of publications can only improve the work that we produce each year.”

CAS members and others interested in volunteering with the Literature Review Board should contact Elizabeth Smith, manager of publications, at
