Abstract

This paper introduces some of the work of the Editorial Development Group (EDG), which is an editorial sub-committee of EPAT that was established in 2013 with the aims of: increasing editorial expertise within the membership of PESA; and responding to the current transformations occurring in the academic publishing world. The EDG comprises approximately 10 PESA members, who are either doctoral thesis candidates or university staff employed at junior academic grades. The work of the EDG is conceptualised as ‘editorial education’ in the form of collegial, scholarly discussion, which takes place by means of internet technology including social media, voice-over IP and electronic mail. In the Editor Interview Project, during mid-2014 some EDG members completed and recorded online interviews with six senior Editors of leading educational academic journals. The paper considers the significance, process and interim results of this project. Copyright © 2014 44th the Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia (PESA) Annual Conference.
