C&RL Spotlight

One of the primary roles of an editor is to support research and writing. This can be an explicit activity in the form of coordinating the journal, managing the review process, and editing the articles and issues. It can also be a more informal effort that focuses on development and intentionally engaging readers and authors about the writing or research processes. The editorials are a useful venue for such an endeavor. C&RL readers will find that many of the past editorials, those written by me or by guests, seek to engage in topics that will make the research, writing, and editorial processes more transparent as well as providing useful perspectives for authors and researchers. The guest editorial for July follows this trend. “Collaborative Authorship as Peer Mentorship” by Courtney Jacobs, Marcia McIntosh, and Kevin M. O’Sullivan describes the lessons learned in their collaboration and addresses effective practice in projects that may be operational or organizational in nature and in research efforts that may ultimately result in shared publication.
