Sharing conference articles

In this issue we start sharing articles written by volunteer authors from the presentations at the recent highly successful IPEd conference.

The articles will appear in forthcoming issues and will be tagged with #IPEdConf21 for ease of grouping them together. Thank you to all those who volunteered to contribute articles on conference sessions they particularly enjoyed.

Dr Gershwin, Mr Innes, Prof Sussex and A/P Allen’s involvement is with the assistance of the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund.

Australian standards for editing practice

The 2013 edition of the Standards is due for revision.

We invite all members and the wider publishing industry to submit revisions to the Australian standards for editing practice.

IPEd aims to update the Standards to reflect current practices in both Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. It will be renamed the IPEd standards for editing practice.

Submissions close on 30 September 2021.

Submissions should specifically identify:

  • any standard that is no longer relevant and should be omitted
  • any language that needs updating
  • any new standard that should be included.

The IPEd Standards Working Party will then begin a detailed consultative and review process on the proposed revisions.
