Editor

From LISWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A person who selects and prepares the works of other writers for publication, by selection, arrangement, and annotation. Some collected works (and most periodicals) have more than one editor. Multi- volume reference sets may require a general editor to supervise the work of a staff of editors.

The editing process is usually divided into five functions:

  • Acquisition editor recommends works to the publishing company for publication;
  • Manuscript editor assists the author in organizing and shaping the work
  • Copy editor helps to perfect details of grammar and style, and checks facts for accuracy
  • Managing editor coordinates the resources necessary for publication and develops a publication schedule
  • Production editor oversees the transition from the editorial process to actual production ( printing, binding, and distribution)
