        Subject: New Issue of Scholarly Editing; Call for Articles and Proposals for Editions

We are pleased to announce the publication of *Scholarly Editing: The Annual
of the Association for Documentary Editing* (vol. 34, 2013), now in its
second issue as an online publication at www.scholarlyediting.org.

*Scholarly Editing* publishes peer-reviewed editions of primary source
materials of cultural significance while continuing the decades-long
tradition of publishing articles and reviews about editing that defined its
print predecessor, *Documentary Editing*. This year's issue includes
editions and essays by contributors from several countries, tackling
materials that span centuries. 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 2013 issue.

Editors, *Scholarly Editing: The Annual of the Association for DocumentaryEditing*


*Scholarly Editing* invites proposals for the 2014 issue. Many scholars
have discovered fascinating texts that deserve to be edited thoughtfully
and imaginatively, and we offer a venue to turn these discoveries into
sustainable, peer-reviewed publications that will enrich the digital record
of our cultural heritage. If you are interested in editing a small-scale
digital edition, we want to hear from you. Proposals for the 2014 issue are
due by April 22, 2013. Please see details for submitting a proposal at

We also welcome submissions of articles discussing any aspect of the theory
or practice of editing, print or digital. Articles must be submitted by
August 5, 2013, to be considered for the 2014 issue. Please see details at
