Our editorial advisory board

Members of the editorial advisory board provide guidance to the editorial team on existing and planned RCNi products, and suggest new initiatives

The expert panel also advises staff on potential contributors to our products. Members are appointed to the board and are not remunerated for their role but expenses are paid. The board meets around three times a year.
