About the Guides Editorial Group

The MMI Guides are being developed through a community-based effort, involving volunteers from many research institutions and agencies across the US and Canada, and supported in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation.  The authors of each individual guide are listed on that guide's page. The Editorial Group reviews the guides, ensures quality and consistancy across guides, develops the table of contents and defines needed guides, and seeks external feedback on the guides.
