Who is an editor?
The WikiJournal of Humanities is set up such that anyone can contribute. Minor edits, such as formatting, copyediting and minor wording edits may be done by anyone. Edits that change the meaning of the article require peer review, and should instead be added at the article's Discussion page before triggering a new round of academic peer review.
In a practical sense, the editors of each journal are organised into two groups:
- The editorial board is responsible for journal strategy, has final responsibility for ensuring that robust academic peer review is performed in a timely manner, and handles any confidential article submissions. Information about editorial board responsibilities can be found here. If you are interested in joining the editorial board, you can apply here.
- The associate editors help in contacting prospective peer reviewers, formatting accepted manuscripts, and integrating suitable material into Wikipedia. They can also vote in board elections. Information about associate editor responsibilities can be found here. If you are interested in joining as an associate editor, you can apply here.
All previous editor applications can be viewed here.
