Feature Editor --
you can do it alone or with colleagues as a team;
or invite 1-3 students, Editorial Interns,
to assist you...
Points to remember
to share your knowledge and expertise
- Define your topic/subject/focus and who may submit or select
established/published topic marked VACANT, see KEYWORDS
- Select issue that you like your topic/subject to be published: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
- Develop your promotion: remember, you need minimum fifteen accepted submissions
for a specific issue or two submissions for on-going-topic-in-each-issue.
To achieve such quota, use several promotional options. You are welcome to develop
and/or update promo options to your liking.
- Send points 1,2,3 to firstname.lastname@example.org We may suggest changes
or accept as is. It may take few days to review your focus and promo.
- When accepted, we will create URL for you - similar to examples in
In order to see that you have identified and developed a viable topic,
first month promo must produce at least 400 points, visitors/hits
- in consecutive
months, required number of points may diminish
- and then gradually peak to
400 or more visitors/hits again - four months before publication
- See visitors/hits examples in progress report
- Remain flexible and open
to different ways of attracting visitors/hits - potential authors.
- We are able to monitor results of your promotion by number of visitors/hits your URL
- Progress report tally is updated on the first of each month.
In case of a poor showing, publication date may be delayed by one or more issues;
you may be asked to broaden your topic...
- in addition, you can monitor the
number of responses that your promo generates by KEYWORD in track-your-submission.
- Authors will send their submissions to AEQ, rarely to you. If so, you
forward manuscript to Anna at email@example.com We will assign
submission number for blind review.
- If you yourself wish to review any,
please follow Manuscript Reviewing Guidelines.
- In case of a disagreement
among reviewers, we will seek your input to break the tie.
Copy Editor will schedule and determine the outcome of the issue.
- Feature Editor writes one page editorial, about 500 words. If there are three
or more topics, than the two editors with the highest number of accepted
submissions will write editorials. See Issue Index for some
Often, your editorial, e.g., Spr 03 or article from your issue, e.g., Sum 03 is
picked up by other publications like The Chronicle of Higher Education. Note:
Editorial, Focus or any CFP as a whole or parts may be used by this journal with
or without editor's name at a later date.
- Feature Editor does not have to read all submitted manuscripts. Instead, a
month before publication date, Issue Editor will be asked to write editorial:
generic or a specific one. If the latter is chosen, we will send abstracts
of accepted articles and/or selected/requested full text.
- Authors with submission queries ought to be directed to Submission Procedure
page. Journal's administrative staff will carry all and any
correspondence with reviewers and/or authors.
- Reviewers come from Editorial Staff and may select/read/evaluate any manuscript.
It is not a responsibility of the Feature Editor to assign 2-3 peer reviewers.
- When needed, AEQ may invite a subject specialist outside journal staff.
- In case of a disagreement among reviewers, we will seek Feature Editor's input.
Sometimes Feature Editor may be asked to soften and restate the substance of reviews that are unnecessarily harsh in tone.
- Feature Editors do not have a control over who the 2-3 reviewers might be, and
have no knowledge who the authors are. So defined role preserves journal's
double-blind-peer-reviewed process & assures article publication based on merit
and not favor, bias, or personal preference. See manuscript acceptance rate.
- We welcome editors' input for Readers' Choice or Editors' Choice.
- Feature Editors have general knowledge of issues and trends in a specific
subject; certainly it is not necessary to be known for high-quality research
on a topic in order to be regarded as subject expert.
- All work is voluntary. No formal
compensation is given. However, we do offer five incentive remuneration options.
from-coast-to-coast and worldwide.
