I would suggest an founding Editorial Committee of 3-4 to deal with
commissioning articles (and, of course, finding funding and other 
details). Then, a separate Content Editor to deal with contributors' 
contributions and typesetters etc. I edit a similar type of journal
(specialist area within Musicology), but which is on a smaller 
scale. We
have 2 on the commissioning side (share the blame and the risk!), one 
whom (me) then carries out the content editing.
