        Subject: 2014 Scholarly Editing Publication and 2015 CFP

We are pleased to announce the publication of the newest issue of Scholarly
Editing: The Annual of the Association for Documentary Editing (vol. 35,
2014), online 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. As always, the editions represent diverse materials from a variety
of fields, and this year we also present our first non-English language
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 2014 issue.

Editors, Scholarly Editing: The Annual of the Association for Documentary


Scholarly Editing invites proposals for the 2015 issue. Many scholars know
fascinating texts that deserve to be edited thoughtfully and imaginatively,

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 2015 issue are due by May 9, 2014. 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
