Technical Publications Committee (TPC)

The CIM TPC comprises CIM staff and volunteer Peer Review Chairs and Co-Chairs for the nine CIM Technical Societies, who come from the public and private sector across Canada. They:


  • encourage authors to submit high-quality papers to CIM Journal;
  • recruit volunteer peer reviewers with the expertise to conduct thorough and professional reviews of the technical content of papers (we are very fortunate and thankful that we have well over 400 volunteer peer reviewers and counting); and
  • assess reviewer recommendations and render review decisions on paper acceptance.

Together, the CIM TPC optimizes the flow of technical papers through peer review and maintains the high-quality standards of CIM Journal content.
