Given the fundamental importance of editorial independence to scientific publishing, it is surprising that there are not more resources available about how to ensure that editors are genuinely independent and free of conflicts of interest (whether potential, perceived or actual). This preprint paper takes a look at the issues and highlights why we need guidance in this important area. A useful read for current and future editors and for those associated with the operation of academic publications.
