Abstract

Editing tends to be something which is picked up from observation and mimicry rather than through working from first principles. There is, as such, massive variation in practice, probably much greater than is realised. These include different languages, national scholarly traditions, different genres, and disciplines. The round table is intended to continue and broaden out discussion as part of a projected series of workshops to take place over the next 2-3 years.

Participants include Steven Biddlecombe (University of Exeter), Stephen Church (University of East Anglia), Philippa Mary Hoskin (University of Lincoln), Nicholas Karn (University of Southampton), and Christopher Woolgar (University of Southampton).
