Topic: Professional Editorial Standards: How do they work for you?

Many of Canada’s editors use new technologies and work in industries that are far from traditional print publishing. Technological advances and current working methods are at the heart of the latest edition of Professional Editorial Standards, Editors Canada’s cornerstone publication. This new edition took effect January 1, 2017, and is now available as a free download.

Now what? What do you do with them? How are they relevant to your work? Are they only for book editors? (Spoiler: no!) What kinds of changes did Editors Canada make in this new edition and why? What should people who hire or work with editors know about the standards? What should people who teach editors know?
