Abstract

At the increasingly common "meet the editors" sessions at academic conferences, editors of academic journals are sitting side-by-side with people they might variously consider competitors, colleagues or compatriots in misery. People attending the sessions are seeking insight into what they might expect as the products of their labors go into the months-long rabbit hole of the review process. The editors' perspectives on these same sessions are far from unidimensional or monolithic, alternately seeking papers for submissions, readers for potential citations, visibility for the journal name, young minds to influence or subscriptions to sell. Sometimes they do not seem to know why they are there as they read from a series of slides showing the tables of contents of recent issues. Unnoticed, even by some of the editors themselves, we are talking to each other. I have been listening.
