As a professional society, we try to address some of the qualities, interests and skills needed by people thinking about an editing career.

An indispensable tool for editors is a style sheet. Society member Kathie Stove DE has written a paper about style sheets called 'Editing with style' (IPEd website).

If you are thinking about becoming an editor, you should also review the IPEd publication Australian standards for editing practice and the Australian government's Style manual, revised by Snooks & Co., published by John Wiley & Sons Australia Ltd in 2002.

Another excellent reference is The editor's companion, by Janet Mackenzie, second edition published by Cambridge University Press in 2011.

Editors who are full members or associate members benefit from the professional development opportunities we offer during the calendar year.
