From the Editors. . .

It is heartening to see the January 2012 issue of VOX emerge. We have articles about our past (Millard reprint), the realizations of a newcomer (Springer), thoughts on research agenda (Pratt) and a rumoured institute (Muri).

VOX is your voice. What are your thoughts on issues such as:

  • TABBS (Transparent, Activity-Based Budget System):
  • Policy and research innovation?
  • Workload?
  • Copyright and teaching resources?
  • Gender issues?
  • Roles of sessionals?
  • IP3?
  • USFA negotiations?
  • Salary structures?
  • Interdisciplinary research and teaching?
  • Teaching evaluations?

We invite you to put together a short article on these issues or on anything else you believe is of relevance to U of S faculty. Although we suggest something around 300 words in length, we would definitely entertain something longer. You’ll find information at the end of this publication on where to direct submissions.

…To be continued with the next issue and your opinions and thoughts, we hope.
