The importance of maintaining the human touch
Being an editor is a rewarding yet challenging job with much of the work occurring through an electronic online automated system. Whilst the efficiency of processing is significantly enhanced by such systems, and feedback from the authors and reviewers is mostly positive, it can be difficult to maintain a personal approach.

Managing Editor, Professional Development in Education
If you want a journal to grow, you can’t do it alone
Professional Development in Education began its life 40 years ago as the British Journal of In-service Education, run by a small, close-knit team who encouraged “practitioner” contributions as well as articles emerging from academic research. In those days a team of about six editors read every article and each was discussed fully at Editorial Boards before a decision was made. This was one of the best professional learning environments I've been involved in and it highlighted the fact that academics disagree.
