Editing Research: The Author Editing Approach to Providing Effective Support to Writers of Research Papers

Editors who work directly with academic researchers, helping to make their draft manuscripts suitable for publication in peer-reviewed scholarly journals, refer to themselves as authors editors. As a profession, author editing has been around for more than a half-century, but its role in research communication is often underappreciated and sometimes misunderstood.


In this book, authors editor and former researcher Valerie Matarese documents the history of author editing and illustrates, through interviews with experienced editors, the varied ways in which these language professionals support researchers in their efforts to publish. Editing Research fills a void in the historical record of academic publishing and provides an up-to-date account of how authors editors facilitate research communication and contribute to good publication practice.
