Once a nomination from the network's editorial or advisory board has been received and the network/review editor's or advisory board member's application has been completed, they are submitted directly to the current Chair of the H-Net Council, who in turn sends it to the committee. Certification by the committee normally occurs one week after submission by the Chair. Nominees are then notified of their appointment by an H-Net officer (usually the Associate Director or the Editor Training Coordinator), who also directs them to the H-Net training site or other resource to enable them to begin their duties. Newly-appointed editors should always confirm their appointment with the on-duty or lead editor for their network. Notifications will also be copied to the current network editorial address.
You cannot begin editing a network until after you have been notified that the Council has certified you as an editor. If you have not received editor training to use the H-Net Commons or you are just beginning your work as an editor or book review editor, please note the contact information in the notification letter.
