The Art of Academic Editing: A Guide for Authors and Editors

Edited by Cara Jordan and Leslie Castro-Woodhouse

Whether you’re approaching academic editing as an author or an editor, this book will demystify the key stages in the editorial process. The Art of Academic Editing is the first full-length guide to the different types of editorial services and when they happen in the life cycle of a scholarly text. It will facilitate more effective collaboration between authors and editors as the field of academic editing expands.  

The book covers:

  • Developmental editing
  • Book coaching
  • Working with international authors
  • Working with graduate students
  • Line editing
  • Copyediting
  • Indexing
  • Proofreading

Our eight contributing authors—experts in their fields—explain the nuts and bolts of their editing practice using real-life models, sharing their tips and advice for both scholarly writers and editors. The book is written in an engaging, nontechnical style to make it easier for all readers, regardless of their background or editing experience, to understand the academic editor’s methods, skills, and training. With a glossary of common terms and an online resource guide, this is the essential handbook both for scholarly editors and the authors working with them.
