Capstone Editing—Gold Sponsor for the 8th IPEd National Editors Conference
This September, the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre will host the 8th Institute of Professional Editors’ (IPEd) National Editors Conference. Capstone Editing is proud to be a Gold Sponsor of this important conference for the editing industry.
Leaders in the industry—including Capstone Editing’s Director and Head Editor, Dr Lisa Lines—are set to present cutting-edge research and practices and facilitate invaluable professional development workshops. This conference is an absolute must for all professional editors, which is why we are thrilled to participate!
What is IPEd?
IPEd is a professional organisation for editors: it ‘exists to advance the profession of editing, by planning and implementing activities that support its members’. This year, IPEd is hosting its National Editors Conference in Brisbane. This year’s theme, ‘Advancing Our Profession’, fulfils IPEd’s chief objective: to provide editors with resources and training to hone their craft for the advancement of the industry.
Why is the IPEd National Editors Conference Important?
Editors from different parts of the industry—from online and print publishers, to those working in book distribution and marketing—have the opportunity to learn new skills, hear about topical research that shapes best practice and network with industry leaders.
Capstone Editing’s Director and Head Editor, Dr Lisa Lines, is among the highly respected professionals who will be presenting workshops at the conference. In fact, Dr Lines’ workshop—‘The “Guidelines for Editing Research Theses”: Necessary training in how to follow the guidelines in our changing tertiary education environment’—is already sold out! She will also be presenting a session on ‘Substantive editing as a form of plagiarism among postgraduate students’. The information and training that will be provided during these sessions, along with the others listed on the IPEd conference program, are necessary for any editor working in academic editing.
