== How the Editorial Committee Functions ==
The Code4Lib Journal Editorial Committee works much as Code4Lib does: informally and collaboratively. One member of the Editorial Committee (EC) volunteers to be managing editor of a journal issue and is responsible for distributing the call for papers, communicating with potential authors, opening and closing editorial committee voting on submissions, and making sure that accepted articles have volunteer editors.
Everyone on the EC may vote on article proposals as they come in. Voting is straightforward and recorded in the tracking spreadsheet. An article must have at least two 'yes' votes and more 'yes' votes than 'no' votes to be accepted. Once an article is accepted for publication, an EC member volunteers to take on editorial responsibility for that article and shepherds it from proposal to publication, acting as the journal's single point of contact with the author. Most Committee members take responsiblity for at least one article per issue, though the committee is large enough that there is some flexibility with editorial responsibility.
