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 print and screen publications - from fantasy novels, academic texts and oral history to web pages, government documents and corporate reports. 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. With its broad coverage of editorial concerns The Editor’s Companion is the 21st-century replacement for the friendly guidance of in-house mentors and colleagues. • The book is based on Australian Standards for Editing Practice • It will apply editorial skills to the needs of the information economy as well as traditional forms of text such as print • More current and up to date than the competition Contents 1.
