Scholarly Editing Logo


Scholarly Editing: The Annual of the Association for Documentary Editing is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal for the advancement and promotion of editorial theory, practice, and pedagogy. Revived in 2020, the journal was edited by Amanda Gailey and Andrew Jewell from 2012 to 2017. From 1979 to 2012, the Association for Documentary Editing published the journal's predecessor, Documentary Editing, a print publication that evolved from a newsletter format to a quarterly and then annual journal.

The editors in chief of Scholarly Editing invite essays, reviews of print and digital editions, and small-scale editions of understudied authors and texts that reflect our diverse and multifaceted cultural heritage.

The journal intends to represent contributions from all countries and cultures, across disciplines and from outside the academy, including but not restricted to educators, community groups, local genealogists, families seeking ancestors, researchers, scholars, historians, archivists, curators, editors, information professionals, students, and digital humanists. We particularly welcome contributions from and about Black, Latinx, and Indigenous peoples; Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, women, LGBTQ+, and people and cultures of the Global South.


The editors welcome essays on the theory, practice and pedagogy of scholarly editing as well as reviews of print and digital editions.

Micro Editions

The editors seek to make Scholarly Editing a home for small-scale editions of interesting and understudied texts so that they may reach a wide audience. We offer a venue to publish carefully edited texts that will enrich the digital records of our diverse and multifaceted cultural heritage.
