Technical Publications Committee (TPC)

The CIM Technical Publications Committee (TPC) is comprised of CIM staff and volunteer peer review chairs and co-chairs from the 10 technical Societies, who come from public and private sectors across Canada. The TPC encourages authors to submit high-quality papers to the quarterly CIM Journal, recruit volunteer peer reviewers with the expertise to conduct thorough and professional reviews of the technical content of papers and assess reviewer recommendations and render review decisions on paper acceptance. The TPC optimizes the flow of technical papers through peer review and maintains the high-quality standards of CIM Journal content.
