Copyediting: A Practical Guide

Front Cover
Copyediting: A Practical Guide confronts all the major problems most copyeditors face, together with such diverse aspects as word transposition, what to do with artwork, and how to handle permissions. It covers topics such as proofreading symbols, punctuation and grammar, style and word usage, typemarking and keying, specialization, and getting work. The book can be used as a learning tool, a supplement to a style manual, or as a reference for experienced copyeditors. In addition, authors can use it to edit their material, university students can use it to polish their theses, and all other with the urge to write can use it to improve their work.
