Abstract or Summary
  • The North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) was established in 1992 to promote and coordinate marine scientific research and data sharing challenges in the North Pacific Ocean. To fulfill this mission, a vigorous publications program has grown out of the crucial need for efficient communication with a highly varied audience. The PICES Finance and Administration (F&A) Committee directed the Executive Secretary to undertake an external review of its publications program. Publishing is an expensive and time-consuming activity; however the products generated are important in fulfilling the organization’s mission. PICES relies on a small, dedicated staff and the efforts of individual volunteers and organizational members to accomplish its publishing goals. In 2003, a similar program review was commissioned, so the current review provides an opportunity to consider options for the future with special consideration of electronic publishing and to evaluate the efficacy of the 2003 recommendations.
