Senior Editors not only participate in the preliminary review process (i.e. all Senior Editors are also Editors), but also work directly with the authors of selected essays to revise and edit papers prior to publication. They provide suggestions for argument strengthening and additional research as well as help with organizational and grammatical errors.

Editors work in teams to read and analyze essay submissions in the preliminary review process. They use their knowledge of historical writing to rank submissions based on topic and thesis originality, thesis clarity, primary and secondary source engagement, and writing style. The editors’ feedback is the most important factor in determining essay selection. The Journal’s editors need not be History concentrators.
