2012 Best Practices in Editing
This panel explores how the advent of ebooks and other technological changes have altered, or should alter, how we edit. What is the right amount of editing? How should editorial tasks be allocated among acquisitions editors, in-house manuscript editorial staff, and freelance copyeditors? Whither developmental editing? How should XML workflows affect what editors do? How should editorial work change as our products are offered in digital reflowable formats as well as--or even instead of--print and other fixed formats?
