Scholarly editing, although specialized, covers a wide range of subject matter and includes a variety of texts. It can be an exciting and rewarding field for any editor with a love of lifelong learning. In this seminar, we will discuss the distinct mandate of scholarly publishing; the scholarly publishing process and the editor’s place within it; and texts and the scholarly apparatus of notes, bibliography, indexes, appendices, tables, and illustrations. This seminar is best suited for participants who already know the editing basics as it focuses on how to edit scholarly publications and how to work with academic authors.


Kate Merriman is a freelance editor who has worked in the scholarly publishing field for 15 years. She has edited scholarly journals and books on philosophy, history, theology, religious studies, political science, literary criticism, and art.
