Feature Editor (FE)
You can do it alone or with colleagues as a team; or invite a graduate student, Editorial Intern, to assist you.   Your graduate student becomes familiar with subject resources on the Internet, gains knowledge of issues and trends in a specific subject, and may earn extra money.
  1. Feature Editors have general knowledge of issues and trends in a specific subject; certainly it is not necessary
    to be known for high-quality research on a topic in order to be regarded as subject expert.
  2. Naturally, after successful years as AEQ Feature Editor you will become known in the academia..
  3. You have an opportunity here to influence the education paradigm of the future.
