Christopher Adam appointed as OUP Delegate for Economics
Congratulations to Professor Christopher Adam, who has been appointed as the Delegate for Economics to the Board of Delegates of Oxford University Press (OUP).
Delegates, who are appointed from among the academic staff of the University, oversee OUP policy. They meet fortnightly during term under the chairmanship of the Vice-Chancellor and are actively involved in the publishing programme. All proposals are referred to them for approval and individual Delegates maintain a dialogue with editors in their specialist subject areas.
They also appoint a Finance Committee which effectively acts as the organisation's board of directors.
The appointment is for five years with effect from 1 September 2021. Professor Adam takes over from Professor Margaret Stevens of the Department of Economics.
