For more than twenty years, A Guide to Documentary Editing has proven an invaluable tool for scholarly editors, editors-in-training, readers of documentary editions, and other students of American history and literature. This new, extensively revised edition of the Guide arrives in the midst of great change in the field. In addition to exploring fully the increasingly central role electronic technology plays in the editing process, this edition provides the most current treatment of the craft's fundamental issues. These include locating and collecting sources, transcribing source texts, conventions of textual treatment, dealing with nontextual elements, and preparing editions for publishers. The documentary-editing environment is more vibrant than ever, and the authors draw on this wealth of activity to include numerous examples of the Guide 's principles in practice.
Over the past twenty years, the field of scholarly editing has expanded and altered immeasurably. In Editing Documents and Texts Beth Luey has compiled for the first time 900 references from nearly 200 journals and books that explain how scholarly editors do their work and the theories behind their editing. Bridging the traditional gap between historical and literary editing, Luey surveys the relevant scholarship in all editorial fields and presents a thorough picture of the state of the discipline.
This volume is aimed both at more experienced editors, who may wish to skip over the advice offered in the introduction, as well as at those who are new to the craft and want to know how to begin work on publishing historical documents of interest to them.
A career guide for students interested in pursuing a career in historical editing and publishing. Includes: Required training and experience, descriptions of job types, and profiles of practicing historical editors.
Since 1979, Documentary Editing has been a premier journal in the field of documentary and textual editing. Beginning with the 2012 issue, Documentary Editing has been renamed Scholarly Editing: The Annual of the Association for Documentary Editing and has become an open-access, digital publication. While retaining the familiar content of the print journal, including peer-reviewed essays about editorial theory and practice, the 2012 issue of Scholarly Editing is the first to publish peer-reviewed editions.
The Association for Documentary Editing was created in 1978 to promote documentary editing through the cooperation and exchange of ideas among the community of editors. The majority of editing done on ADE-associated projects is carried out by university-based editors, researchers, and faculty members. Some are multi-volume editions that are being compiled by full-time staffs, while others are solo projects.
The Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents is an annual five-day workshop for individuals new to historical documentary editing. Experienced documentary editors provide instruction in the principles of their field and insight into the realities of their work.
