The Australian standards for editing practice is a core document for editors, developed by CASE, the forerunner to IPEd.
The 'Guidelines for editing research theses', originally developed collaboratively in 2001 by the (then) Council of Australian Societies of Editors (CASE) and the Deans and Directors of Graduate Studies (DDOGS), have recently been revised and updated.
The updated guidelines, prepared by the Institute of Professional Editors, were reviewed and endorsed by DDOGS on 12 November 2010.
The revision takes account of the changing environment in which many editors, students and their supervisors work. The spirit of the original is maintained. What has changed is the reference to electronic editing, a clearer articulation of the editor’s role, and the linking of editing functions and responsibilities to the Australian Standards for Editing Practice.
