Scholarly Editing Publication and 2016 CFP

We are pleased to announce the publication of the newest issue of Scholarly Editing: The Annual of the Association for Documentary Editing (vol. 36, 2015), online at www.scholarlyediting.orgScholarly Editing publishes peer-reviewed editions of primary source materials of cultural significance while continuing the tradition of publishing articles and reviews about scholarly editing. This year, we have introduced a new feature, “Reflections on the Editor’s Craft,” where we will publish the views of experienced editors on practical aspects of editing. As always, the editions represent diverse materials from a variety of fields, and this year we present editions of a nineteenth-century American manuscript drama; an antislavery poem’s circulation and recreation through nineteenth-century American newspaper reprintings; a sixteenth-century Italian play; and a twentieth century experimental autobiography presented in a provocatively nonlinear, interactive edition. We are pleased not only to present editors with a rigorously peer-reviewed publication platform, but also to share fascinating documents from cultural history with the reading public. All of this material is available freely online and is completely open-access. Please see below for our call for editions and articles for next year’s issue, as well as the full table of contents for the 2015 issue.
