Chapter 15 How to be a good editor - ten (very personal) commandments
Restricted access

Having been an academic for about thirty years I have during this time written texts, tried to publish them, I have also been on the other side of the publishing barrier, worked as a journal editor, and edited some books. Drawing on this experience I have reflected on how a 'good editor' should be. The main advice is to act as the one who should help to improve the text, on its merit, so that it can be put forth. Also, remember there are people behind the manuscript and the reviews.
