As editors are now required to work in many different media, The Australian Editing Handbook discusses editing within the contexts of book publishing, newspapers, magazines, websites and online newsletters. With chapters on the publishing industry, the role of the editor, specialist editing, on–screen editing, and the editing of electronic publications, this updated edition takes into account the changes and challenges facing editors today.
The Australian Editing Handbook answers more questions than you ever thought you would have about working with the English language: from punctuation to grammar, and language structure and style, this comprehensive guide takes a hands–on approach to the specialised skill of editing. Through its many working examples and explanations for every possible editing query, plus helpful tips and checklists, readers will learn the technical procedures and practical skills for dealing with mark–up, illustrations, copyright permissions, preliminary and endmatter, proofreading, even writing cover blurbs, as well as how to efficiently manage schedules and costs.
Written by acknowledged experts in the field, The Australian Editing Handbook is an authoritative guide covering every stage of the editing process.
