Distinguished Editors (DEs) were nominated by their societies to prepare for and assess the first two accreditation exams in 2008 and 2009. The term ‘distinguished’ was chosen to indicate that their peers considered that DEs exceeded the level of competence that is tested by the exam and were, therefore, qualified to assess exam candidates. Unlike Accredited Editors (AEs), DEs are not required to maintain professional development and practice, and there will be no new DEs: the postnominal will be retired as DEs leave the profession. Many DEs are also IPEd Honorary Life Members (HLMs).
In the list of DEs below, links to their websites or entries in freelance registers and editorial services directories are included. Not all have such links as many work in-house, in the government, educational, publishing or corporate sectors.
