Editorial Leadership and OAO Partners

Editorial leadership

A group of distinguished art historians guide the development of the Grove Dictionary of Art and the Benezit Dictionary of Artists. Each dictionary is led by an Editor in Chief, who works closely with the publishing editors at Oxford University Press. 

Dr. Sonya Lee serves as the Editor in Chief of Grove Art, and Dr. Valerie Cassel Oliver serves as the Editor in Chief of Benezit. Dr. Lee oversees the Grove Art Editorial Board, which together supervises the commissioning program for the resource as well as the peer review process. Oxford Art Online also has an advisory board of art historians, art librarians, and art experts who advise on functional enhancements and the needs of existing and emerging users of the resource. In addition, project editors oversee the scholarship and production of specialized works.
