The Role and Responsibilities of the Editor
The primary role of the editor is to manage the journal.
*. He/She will determine whether a submitted manuscript is appropriate for Publication.
*. Selects expert reviewers (i.e., referees) and an area editor to evaluate the submitted manuscript.
*. Renders a final editorial decision on each manuscript based on the AE recommendation, journal priorities, other similar manuscripts in process and related considerations.
*. Communicates directly with the author and the review team.
*. Schedules accepted manuscripts for publication.
*. Balances workloads for the area editors and reviewers.
Scholarly journal editors often review writers' work for accuracy and grammar. They may suggest that the writers take out certain paragraphs or perform more research in order for the article to appear more credible to readers.
2. Query Letters
Scholarly journal editors also receive, review and make final decisions on query letters for articles from potential writers. For example, if the editor edits a scholarly journal about Asian-American history, he or she will more likely accept articles that deal with some aspect of this topic.
Editors of scholarly journals also write articles occasionally. They may spend part of the work week on editing and the second half of the week writing articles.
4. Working with Publishers
Scholarly journals editors also work closely with the publisher. They help coordinate and preside over staff meetings, discuss ways to improve the quality of the journal with the publisher, and in some cases are in charge of hiring and training new staff members.
5. Assembling Layout
Scholarly journal editors are also responsible for the layout of the journal. They pick the most important articles and often put those in the beginning of the journal and work their way down to the least important.
