A commissioning editor is the vital link between a published work and a manuscript. They take an active role in the entire process of publishing a book. They first identify and review the market in which the book will be published. They also support and develop projects and authors. They are in charge of maintaining a publishing program. They also participate in sales and marketing activities. In short a commissioning editor develops a publisher's book list.

Their role is closely associated with the publishing of the book. They commission reporters to write features and articles in magazine publishing. They accept contributions from an external editor in academic journal publishing. This post is not given to beginners. It requires both ability and suitable experience. A beginner may be given a junior post and then be promoted to commissioning editor.
