Oct.-Nov. 2014

Now that fall is here, it’s time to settle down with some serious work, and our October–November issue is the perfect tool to prepare you.

Our In Depth feature tackles the heady topic of editor ethics. Few editing organizations offer guidance on how editors should do their jobs and comport themselves, making it necessary for individual editors to think through situations and come up with their own code of ethics. I offer a code you can use in the article.

Elsewhere in this issue, we have a lesson on math basics, a discussion of subject-verb agreement, a review of online bibliography software, and much more. Download your issue now and get learning!

August-September 2014

This issue may be in the middle of summer, but this issue of Copyediting is more autumn-like—it deals with a lot of change.

Our big change is with our In Style writers. We bid good-bye to our long-serving columnists Norm Goldstein and Paul R. Martin. They’ve given us decades of generous advice, and we’ll miss them. Stepping into their very big shoes is freelance writer and copyeditor Karen Yin, whose first column promises great things ahead for readers.

The rest of the issue tackles changes in language (what’s the deal with possessives and gerunds?), changes in processes (hint: document everything!), changes in how we do our jobs (research journal articles online), and even what our jobs entail (OCR and EPUB files, anyone?).

June/July 2014

Our June–July issue is packed full of lessons from this year’s ACES event. The conference theme this year was Digital in the Desert, and our issue reflects that. Although digital publishing has disrupted publishing in general, it also offers copyeditors opportunities to make themselves more valuable to their employers by improving the quality of the content they work on.
