Members of the BPS-IOP Advisory Board include leaders in a range of biophysics disciplines.  These scientists guide the direction and growth of the eBooks program by identifying information needs and target authors within the field.  They make recommendations, evaluate proposals, and meet twice a year to review the list of target titles and project documents. Members serve a three-year term.
