This spring the Council of the Association for Documentary Editing (ADE), working with the Publications Committee, accepted our proposal to edit Documentary Editing, beginning with the 2012 issue; the Council also approved a change in the journal’s title to Scholarly Editing: The Annual of the Association for Documentary Editing. Our plan is to continue the fine traditions of the journal— essays about the theory and practice of editing, reviews of editions, and news pertinent to the ADE membership—while simultaneously taking the journal in an exciting new direction. Owing largely to a partnership with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Center for Digital Research in the Humanities, the journal will soon be an open-access digital publication, and it will also begin to publish peer-reviewed short editions. Following is our Call for Editions, which we hope many readers of Documentary Editing will have already seen. We also hope that many of you will consider submitting a proposal to us and encourage your colleagues with appropriate projects to do so as well. We are, of course, happy to discuss ideas with editors informally before a full proposal is submitted.
