National Scholarly Editors’ Forum

The establishment of a forum of editors of national scholarly journals has been accomplished, and the Forum has to date held eight very successful and well-attended meetings of editors of national scholarly journals (July 2007, October 2008, June 2009, July 2010, July 2011, 25 July 2012, 23 July 2013 and 30 July 2014). These meetings have inter alia had the following significant outcomes: (a) A mandate was given to sustain the Forum as a consultative and advisory body managed by the Academy and suitable terms of reference for a National Scholarly Editors’ Forum were drafted and adopted; (b) A National Code of Best Practice in Editorial Discretion and Peer Review was drafted and adopted; (c) A mandate was given for the envisaged quality assurance regimen of the Academy, based on peer review of discipline-grouped titles. Plenary consultations were also held on many key topics such as copyright issues, open access conversion, open source software, and economies of scale in publishing logistics.
