    The abbreviation “e.g.” stands for “exampli gratia”, which is Latin for “for example”.

    I’m afraid I don’t know what is meant by “editor-in-large”. :( I’ll have to let others help you out with your first question. Okay?

    We have editor-in-chief, but this is new to me.

    Maybe it's supposed to be "editor-at- large"?

    editor-in-large

    I did a google search for "editor-in-large", and I did find it used a few places. Unfortunately, I couldn't figure out how it is different from any other kind of editor. Hm. It looks like the people here aren't very helpful either. :(

    Regards,

    Apparently, an editor-at-large is somebody who not only edits submissions by others but also takes on reportorial assignments.
