Note the NEWSLETTER’s anti-nepotism policy:

Responding to concerns about perceived nepotism of reviewers (colleague/colleague or thesis director/ student or former mentor/student) the Executive Committee decided that, while an absolute prohibition against say, a former student reviewing the book of his/her dissertation advisor or mentor, might not be wise, in general such nepotism should be avoided. However since we am not aware of all these possible relationships and since we don't know where many of you potential reviewers gained your Ph Ds or are now teaching, will you please refrain from requesting a book for review when it appears that the sorts of nepotism noted above might be an issue?

Finally, in light of the above mentioned concern about nepotism potential reviewers please indicate:

  1. your dissertation advisor,
  2. where you earned your PHD and
  3. where you are now teaching

Thank you,

Patrick K. Dooley
