A few days ago H-Net Council approved a new description of the H-Net Editor role. This new description had been drafted and mulled over by the Editorial Affairs Committee who approved it on June 23. Council approved it August 1. H-Net President Hollingsworth has directed staff to replace the old description where it appears on H-Net. For now, I’d like to share it here.
