  • Restructuring the Contributor Pay Policy

 

BIRT the PPS strike section 1. c) from the Contributor Pay Policy effective the beginning of the 2016 summer semester.

BIFRT that section 4. is rewritten to say: Contributors must not submit their invoice until after the final issue of the semester has been published and invoices must be received by the Business Manager no later than the end of the month in which the last issue was published.

BIFRT a section 7. is added to the Contributor Pay Policy to state that: Contributors who complete an assignment which is not published due to circumstances beyond the contributor’s control, shall still be paid the full amount, subject to the discretion of the section editor and ultimately the Editor-in-chief.
