The Steering Committee is responsible for the continuity of the proceedings. To date the proceedings of the flatfish symposium have been published in the Journal of Sea Research and at present there is no reason to change this. The Steering Committee is responsible for the negotiations with the publisher concerning costs, numbers of issues and numbers of pages. Members of the steering committee act as guest editors of the proceedings and will be responsible for the process of reviewing and publication. In addition, the local Organising Committee adds one or more guest editor(s) to the editorial board. The costs of the proceedings are paid for by the local Organising Committee.
