Editing Research
The Author Editing Approach to Providing Effective Support to Writers of Research Papers
By Valerie Matarese
Foreword by Tom Lang

"Sheds light on the hidden world of authors' editors and demonstrates the valuable work they do."

—Elizabeth Wager, Publications
Consultant, Sideview

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.

"A deeply researched and masterfully written book ... at once an academic source, a practical manual, and an essential guide for anyone aspiring to this profession of burgeoning importance in contemporary science."

—Daniele Fanelli, Senior Research Scientist,
Stanford University

"Impressively researched ... covers a huge range of topics and issues around the author editing process. Exceptional in its originality and breadth of coverage, and as a source of references on the topic."

—John Flowerdew, Professor, Department of English,
City University, Hong Kong
