James E. McClellan III

The Comite du Librairie of the Academie Royale des Sciences in Paris & its influence on modern scientific refereeing are examined in this 2003 J. F. Lewis award-winning monograph. James McClellan investigates the development & growth of the Comite du Librairie in the late 18th century, & its influence in establishing international norms for processing, modifying, & authorizing books & papers for publication.
