DORA seeks nominations for the Advisory Board from North and South America

DORA seeks nominations and self-nominations from North and South America to fill two open positions on our international Advisory Board.

The role of the advisory board is strategic in nature. It complements the work of the steering committee and provides globally-relevant strategic guidance for future DORA activities. Advisory board members serve a term of three years that can be renewed once. More information about the board and its operation can be found in DORA’s governance procedures.

To maintain the board’s geographic distribution, nominations at this time are limited to individuals from North America and South America. Nominations will be reviewed by the DORA steering committee. The ideal nominee will provide a balance to the experiences and strengths of the other advisory board members. Nominations and self-nominations from underrepresented and minoritized scholars and early career researchers are encouraged.

Advisory board members as much as possible reflect DORA stakeholders, including scholarly societies, publishers, funders, researchers, and universities. Advisory board members come from diverse backgrounds, academic fields, and geographic locations.

To nominate someone or yourself to the advisory board, please complete DORA’s short nomination form by July 7, 2020 (see: here). Please reach out to DORA’s program director Dr. Anna Hatch (info@sfdora.org) with any questions.
