Abstract

Drawing on his experience assuming and relinquishing the editorship of the award-winning journal Composition Studies, Peter Vandenberg suggests that a successful editorial transition is the final obligation of a retiring editor, particularly one without imposed term limits. The author illustrates why a successful transition begins with early planning, is made possible by ongoing documentation of practice throughout an editor's term, and culminates in effective mentoring as the new editor becomes acclimated. The author encourages editors to ensure that their commitment is sustained throughout the transition period by planning an exit strategy.
