NATS Books Program Editorial Board

The NATS Books Program editorial board works together to help manage and oversee the copublishing agreement between NATS and Rowman & Littlefield.

The editorial board comprises a group of experienced scholars and researchers representing a variety of disciplines and experiences. They solicit and generate ideas for new books and evaluate proposals. The editorial board works with prospective authors to shape their idea into a proposal that can be successfully published.
