    Scholarly Editing is an open-access journal committed to the development
    and advancement of all aspects of textual editing, including documentary
    editing. The content published in the journal includes essays, micro
    editions, reviews of print and digital editions, and teaching materials.
    The journal’s eclectic, multidisciplinary approach makes it an invaluable
    resource for anyone interested in the theory, practice, and pedagogy of
    scholarly editing, including educators, researchers, scholars, historians,
    archivists, editors, information professionals, and digital humanists.

    We are carrying on the excellent work of Amanda Gailey and Andrew Jewell,
    who pioneered the online iteration of a print journal (Documentary Editing)
    that began as a newsletter in 1979. The most recent issue of the journal

    publication of essays, pedagogical materials, and reviews of print and
    digital editions.

    We will also continue to publish microeditions, which may be in XML/TEI,
    Scalar, or other formats. We expect the primary work of the technical
    editor to involve writing XSLT for these microeditions as well as managing
    microeditions that have been prepared in Scalar or other platforms.

    Skills and competencies: Familiarity with php based systems like OJS, as
    well as XPath, XML/TEI, and XSLT. Ability to work in additional platforms,
    including Scalar and others as the need arises. Ability to collaborate with
    a wide variety of people, including microedition editors, the journal’s
    editorial team, and the support personnel at Reclaim.
