Quality control

ICE news

At the heart of the deal was a 60 year contract to supply ICE members in Europe with New Civil Engineer magazine each week and those outside Europe with its monthly sister title.

Editorial independence was guaranteed and a new editorial advisory board, with joint ICE/NCE representation, was created to help guide editorial policy.

The agreement stipulated that the magazines must be 'of a quality consistent with their association with ICE-as exemplified by publications prior to the commencement date'. The editorial advisory board meets quarterly and ensures that NCE reflects the issues affecting the profession, promotes civil engineering and reflects the needs and wishes of members.

A new Supervisory Board was also created under the deal made up of three senior representatives of the ICE and Emap. This meets at least once a year and exists to oversee the agreement and advise on publishing and product development issues.
