NOSCCA is an independent initiative which evolved out of the science community. There are no extra resources. All contributions are on a voluntary basis, all scientists involved rely on their institutional support only.
More than thirty Lead Authors, between one and three for each chapter, were responsible for the content. They formed writing teams with numerous Contributing Authors. Each chapter was reviewed by three external reviewers supervised by an independent review-editor.
An intense communication between the NOSCCA Co-ordination team, the Lead Authors and the Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) ensured a thoroughly edited Review Book.
