Dear All, 

I am happy to help with the proofreading and work when the time comes without 
remuneration if there are not enough funds to hire a professional editor.

Subject: <editorial board> first issue: organization of labor

Dear all,
about the organization about the very  technical side of the web-journal, I 
think we should work as follow:

I think that there are three tasks: 
	1. Collect the articles and keep the 	relations with the authors;
	2. proofread the articles;
	3. do the layout.

The first task must concern the editors and maybe one editor in particular;

the second  task could concern more persons but in who we trust and who should 
be payed for this work.
The third  task must concern one person or more perons who work together. Last 
time I did this work, I offer myself to do it but if someone of us know someone 
else who do this as work (professionaly I mean) could suggest him/her (I know 
someone for example) but we have to be sure to pay him/her. (for what concern 
myself I can do it without remuneration considering this work my personal 
contibution to the work of the collective).

Then the work should  be organised as follow:
The authors write the articles following our guidelines then they send them to 
the editor of the collective who have the task of collect the articles. This 
person send the article to the person who proofread it. After the proofreading 
the article turn back to the editor. If the article is correct it can be sent to 
the person who does the layout, if the article needs corrections it must be sent 
back to the author, then again to the editor, then to the layout. It  is very 
important that to the person who does the layout arrive the very  last version 
proofread and correct of the articles!

Sorry for the mess! I hope it's clear! 
We think that the deadline should be in th middle of December in order to 
publish in March 2011.

We will send as soon as possible the call for the articles with the guidelines.

We have to find someone who do the proofread (we need to think about the 

We have to decide if I continue to do the  layout or if we give this task to 
someone else.

What do you think about?
