Abstract:

"As the knowledge economy takes shape, editors face many challenges: technology is transforming publishing, text is losing out to graphics, and writing is distorted by cliché, hype and spin. More than ever, editors are needed to add value to information and to rescue readers from boredom and confusion. "The Editor's Companion" explains the traditional skills of editing for publication and how to adapt them for digital production. It describes the editorial tasks for all kinds of prints and screen publications - from fantasy novels, academic texts and oral history to web pages, government documents and corporate reports. It provides advice on operating a freelance business and includes the "Australian Standards for Editing Practice" as an appendix. It is an essential tool not only for professional editors, but also for media and publications officers, self-publishers and writers editing their own work."
