Series editor

Someone heading a book series. Typically, this is a senior scholar whose academic specialization matches the series’ profile and whose status and network function to attract new authors (and readers) to the series. It is not unusual for such scholars to actually initiate the establishment of the series.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup.
