9780935012262: The Copyeditor's Guide to Substance & Style

Formerly "Substance & Style: Instruction and Practice in Copyediting," this updated version of EEI Press's bestseller includes: a new chapter on the basics of electronic editing, not found in any similar guide; an updated matrix showing how different styles affect your editing; an annotated editor's checklist that can help you assign the correct level of effort; access to copyediting resources and exercises on the EEI Press Web site; new insights into the challenges facing contemporary copyeditors; and a smaller, more convenient trim size.

About the Author:

EEI Press publishes publishing-related handbooks and textbooks, as well as "The Editorial Eye," a subscription newsletter focusing on best practices, evolving standards, and trends in publishing. The Press is the trade-publishing division of EEI Communications, the oldest full-service "publishing think-tank" on the East Coast. EEI provides clients with publishing services and consulting, outsourced staffing, and training classes. Press publications reflect companywide communications expertise and a commitment to excellence in all media. We're the best at what we do; we teach what we know; and we publish what we've learned.

Review:

Clear, direct exposition covers not only the most common errors in structure and punctuation but also the craft of copyediting--what's expected and how it can be accomplished. The exercises are abundant, varied, and thoroughly explicated. --assistant director, university first-year writing program
