The primary function of the Senior Curators is to moderate the content of CAZypedia. Some specific duties are:

  • identification of new Responsible Curators and contributing Authors based upon expertise in the research field,
  • to oversee the inclusion of new topics or major sections in CAZypedia,
  • management of copyright issues, including granting permission to use material from CAZypedia,
  • arbitration of factual disputes involving content contributed by authors/editors.

The group of Senior Curators will serve as the ultimate authority regarding the form, content, and scope of CAZypedia and reserves the right to exert final editorial control over all contributions.

Responsible Curators

CAZypedia relies upon a number of select Responsible Curators to provide expert editorial oversight on a page-by-page basis. As such, the Responsible Curators act as primary contact points for any questions or comments for their respective pages. Responsible Curators are also in charge of selecting Authors for their pages and reviewing/editing Author contributions. The name of the corresponding Responsible Curator is listed in the header of each page.
