Anyone who has a PhD, or is working towards one, should be able to relate to the issue of how to address fellow academics. While my PhD is relevant to the work that I do as an academic editor, I have encouraged clients to address me as “Clare,” because I consider that using first names makes everyone feel more comfortable. I’m not sure whether all editors do this, but I think that it’s a bit awkward to insist on formal titles when you’re communicating back and forth in relation to a manuscript. Moreover, I’m not one to pull rank for the sake of it; it’s just not my style.
