Scholarly Editing, begun again after a four year hiatus, publishes essays on the theory, practice, and pedagogy of scholarly editing, as well as reviews and micro-editions of understudied authors and texts that reflect our diverse and multifaceted cultural heritage. The journal intends to represent contributions from all countries and cultures and across disciplines, including but not restricted to educators, researchers, scholars, historians, archivists, curators, editors, information professionals, students, and digital humanists. We particularly welcome submissions from and about the Global South, Black people, Indigenous people, People of Color, women, and other marginalized and underrepresented groups within the field of scholarly editing.

For Issue 39, the editors solicit essays that engage with conversations on theory and practice outlined in Digital Scholarly Editing: Theories and Practices, edited by James Driscoll and Elena Pierazzo (OpenBook Publishers, 2016), among other recent conversations on scholarly editing in all its diverse forms.

Direct all questions about submission and peer review to Managing Editor Robert Riter at <> or Essays Section Editor Ross Tangedal at <>. For further information about technical specifications, content, and house style, see the “Contributing” page on our website <>.

Note: All content published in Scholarly Editing is rigorously reviewed by at least two scholars with expertise relevant to the submission under review. Essays are subject to a standard double-blind review process.
