OBC Interim Board
The OBC Interim Board was created as a result of discussions during the OBC 2010 Conclave. Its purpose is to receive submissions from anyone who has comments, concerns or ideas about any aspect of the functioning of the OBC. The work of the iinterim board also includes a review of how the OBC maintain its ethical standards as an organisation and how it responds to concerns when they are raised.
The OBC Journal is published quarterly. The www.obcjournal.org site will help to keep you up to date on plans for the OBC Journal, make available archives of published articles, allow you to give feedback, and offer help if you want to know how to send in an article, how to subscribe, or other information.
