Definition of TTR operating rules

The rules below aim to clarify the operating rules of TTR, in particular the methods of selection of its members. They take into account the recommendations of the ACT-CATS – TTR Relations Committee (meeting held on September 13, 1991 at the University of Ottawa), as well as those of the TTR Editorial Committee (meeting held on December 3, 2022 at the Concordia University).

Reminder of article 31 a) of the ACT-CATS statutes: “The management of the journal, with the assistance of the editorial committee approved by the board of directors of the Association, is responsible for the management and the publication of the Association’s magazine”; and article 33 b): “The term of office of the journal’s management is three years.”

Composition of the editorial board

The TTR editorial board includes the journal's management and six members.

Nomination procedures

The person responsible for management is elected for three years by the General Assembly of ACT-CATS on the proposal of the editorial committee of the journal which submits its choice to the ACT-CATS nominations committee; these three years are renewable.

The other six members are:

  • The presidency of ACT-CATS, ex-officio for two years.

  • Five members, whose mandate lasts three years (renewable) and whose candidacy is proposed by the editorial committee for approval by the ACT-CATS board of directors. The specialties of each member will be taken into account during the selection.

Members of the editorial committee must be members in good standing of the Association.

Editorial Board Mandate

The management convenes two annual meetings, where all aspects related to the life of the journal (content, management, advertising, etc.) are submitted to the editorial board for discussion and approval. Regarding the evaluation process, the texts are sent to two external specialists as well as two members of the editorial board for their opinions.
