VPHA publication distribution - author info update (5.4.)

The message below was sent to 52 VPHA co-authors and 32 prospective co-authors 
 -- 
Dear VPHA co-authors and prospective co-authors:

This update continues on a topic raised in the latest VPHA status update (31.3., point 2, #2).

To get the VPHA reading done, we are planning to distribute the remaining publications for VPHA co-authors and prospective co-authors for reading. The information of authors and publications is being paired in an open Google spreadsheet called VPHA-author-info-update; the info is in the 2nd tab called “reading-distribution” (link is embedded in the name and you can always find it through http://vph-ald.com/VPHAopenfiles.html). The file is open for everyone to view and comment.

To pair authors and publications to distribute for reading, for each co-author, we list
  • (Name, of course)
  • Languages in which one can read publications (the current list is the first draft and probably misses a lot of language information)
  • Optional: information on a person’s area of specialism
  • Optional: knowledge of specific types of papers one wishes to get (some wishes can be accommodated, but it will probably not be possible to accommodate all)  

All VPHA co-authors: Please check the list for your own part. To update your description, please send an email to us. You can either by reply to this email or email  info@ vph-ald.com. If nothing needs to be changed, we also appreciate an email stating that you have checked the info and that the information is correct.  

Prospective co-authors: Please in a return email (i) confirm your willingness to participate in the VPHA reading & commenting effort and thereby to be included in the list under consideration (VPHA-author-info-update, 2nd tab), and (ii) let us know the languages in which you can read papers (and optionally other information), as described above. Would you not wish to receive further VPHA-related emails, you can tell that in a return email, too.  

I hope that we get the authors and publications paired during this week, so that we can send material for reading next week. Reading should then significantly progress during the next weeks. We will have a check-point in May (date to be defined), to see how much reading is still to be done. By that time, the voting procedure should be clear, too.

With best regards,
Riikka Puurunen, VPHA coordinator
