Developmental Editing Duties

Conduct an initial edit, reviewing for big-picture concerns—everything from brainstorming possible additional content/materials to rearranging text in order to reflect reader expectations and add value

After conferring with the author about any additions/changes about the initial edit, review and revise all of the text in the manuscript, rewriting species accounts, activity instructions, site directions and other types of materials for clarity, economy of language, and ease-of-use

Fact-check materials, claims, and vet any provided sources; provide author with fact-checking corrections via Word comments, along with a reputable source to back up any claims

Spot-check for plagiarism, especially if a section of the text seems out of keeping with author’s style/diction; if necessary, instruct authors to review the entire manuscript with plagiarism in mind and ask for a revision

Return edited initial copy to the author for their review

After the initial draft is returned from the author, send the copy to the copyeditor, instructing them what to be aware of and check, especially diction consistency, heading consistency, and apprising them of any exceptions to house style in the book

As necessary, search for and solicit images for use in books, obtaining, reviewing and selecting the best for use

Once the book is in layout, write and rewrite headings, captions, back cover and marketing copy, as necessary

Once the layout is finalized, provide page references, generate captions/headings, and if necessary, a simple index

Provide author with a final copy of the formatted book, and inform them of any outstanding materials whether text, photos or other materials that they still need to provide, including acknowledgements, dedication, or about the author copy/photo

Arrange for the book to be proofread, and accept/reject those changes, informing production crew what changes to make, based on house style and book's internal consistency
