Ethical Editing

Have you ever wondered what is involved in working with a professional editor—and whether it is even ethical to do so? In this session, Karen Crosby, founder and senior editor of Editarians, explores the different roles and responsibilities of three key stakeholders: the student, the supervisor, and the editor. She discusses the line of authorial integrity and covers what editors can and cannot do to ensure that the line is not crossed. She presents guidelines on the ethical editing of student work, developed by Editors Canada, to steer the three parties along the way. Karen also touches upon ethical considerations covered in style guides, such as APA Style. She promises to leave some time at the end to answer any questions you have and point you in the right direction if you’re looking to hire an editor.
