As October 31 quickly approaches, we have begun to receive chapter submissions. To date, we have 2 of the 27. We have also started to secure peer reviewers. During on C-EBLIP session last week, we put a call out for reviewers as well as tweeting about it, using the conference's hashtag.
Next step: prepare the chapters for the blind peer review process and then send them out to the reviewers. Each reviewer will have 3 weeks per chapter from the time that they receive the email. I plan on putting together yet another spreadsheet to track the progress. If all chapters are in on time, we should have all chapters back to the authors by mid-December at the latest.
Follow up on a previous action: I am only waiting for one more address from one of our contributing authors. Hopefully I can have a finalized list to the publisher by the end of this week.
