The new, updated edition of the handbook that should be on every copyeditors desk.

Unstuffy, hip, and often funny, The Copyeditors Handbook has become an indispensable resource both for new editors and for experienced hands who want to refresh their skills and broaden their understanding of the craft of copyediting. This fourth edition incorporates the latest advice from language authorities, usage guides, and new editions of major style manuals, including The Chicago Manual of Style. It registers the tectonic shifts in twenty-first-century copyediting: preparing text for digital formats, using new technologies, addressing global audiences, complying with plain language mandates, ensuring accessibility, and serving self-publishing authors and authors writing in English as a second language. The new edition also adds an extensive annotated list of editorial tools and references and includes a bit of light entertainment for language lovers, such as a brief history of punctuation marks that didnt make the grade, the strange case of razbliuto, and a few Easter eggs awaiting discovery by keen-eyed readers.

The fourth edition features updates on

  • the transformation of editorial roles in todays publishing environment
  • new applications, processes, and protocols for on-screen editing
  • major changes in editorial resources, such as online dictionaries and language corpora, new grammar and usage authorities, online editorial communities, and web-based research tools
When youre ready to test your mettle, pick up The Copyeditors Workbook: Exercises and Tips for Honing Your Editorial Judgment, the essential new companion to the handbook.
