Dear GBIF friends,

nominations for a newly formed Documentation Editorial Panel* as part of
the 2019 Work Programme item 1.b.4: Establish system for reviewing,
prioritizing, updating and creating new documentation to support GBIF data
publishers and users.

The Documentation Editorial Panel (EP) is a volunteer group of experts,
coordinated by the GBIF Secretariat, that manages the GBIF documentation
system through a peer review process. Additionally, the EP will provide
recommendations to the GBIF Secretariat on commissioning high-priority
guidance from subject-matter experts.

The EP will be comprised of one member from each region within the GBIF

   technical documentation for the biodiversity informatics community.

   - EP members will be recognized as a part of the GBIFS volunteer
   community alongside mentors, open data ambassadors and translators.
