Joanne Meyerowitz

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, the author takes the reader inside the job to describe what editors, as opposed to academic historians, usually do. From her editor's perch, she concludes that the much-discussed “fragmentation” of American history is a “myth.” She also discusses the digital landscape's impact on journal publication, what initiatives she pioneered, and what might lie ahead.

Keywords:   editors, American history, Journal of American History, academic historians
