Copyeditor

Writing/Editorial

Experienced (Non-Manager)

• Mechanical Editing. This involves precise reading of the manuscript, watching out for consistency in all aspects of the paper from capitalization, spelling, and punctuation to the number of ellipsis points, quotation marks, and other style-related aspects.

• Correlating Parts. This includes verifying cross-references in the text and checking footnote and table/figure numbering.

• Language Editing. Grammar, Usage, and Diction: Copyeditors correct—or ask the author to correct—errors in grammar, syntax, usage, and diction, and they should do so without attempting to impose their stylistic preferences on the author. In other words, you should ask yourself, "Is this sentence acceptable as the author has written it?" The issue is not "If I were the writer, would I have written it some other way?"

• Content Editing. This involves bringing to the author's attention any internal inconsistency as well as any structural or organizational problems. Copyeditors are not responsible for the factual correctness of a manuscript but they are expected to offer a polite query about factual statements that you know to be incorrect.

• Permissions. The author should be reminded to obtain permission to reprint lengthy quotations from a source that is under copyright, to reprint tables, charts, graphs, and illustrations that have appeared in print, or to reproduce unpublished materials.

• Typecoding. This involves identifying manuscript parts that are not regular running text, such as part and chapter numbers, titles and subtitles; headings and subheadings; lists, extracts, and displayed equations; table numbers, captions, source lines, and footnotes; figure numbers and figure captions.
