E2d2, conferences, and e2d3

Writing Studio: Editing

Trade drafts with your editing partner. As editor, check to make sure that these technical requirements have been met:

  • There is at least one image that has clearly been altered.
  • All images have captions.
  • All quotations have page citations (35).
  • There is a list of references.

Put a √ by features that are present, a ? by those that seem missing.

Check the list of references carefully to make sure that each item has

  • Author
  • Date
  • “Short Title” and Long Title
  • Place and publisher (for books).  Or journal number and pages (for articles). Or URL (for web texts).

Again, put a √ by features that are present, a ? by those that seem missing.

Check the design elements of the text to make sure that

  • The body of the text is in a serif font, and the paratext (title, subheads, running head) is sans serif.
  • The first page begins with Name, Date, Assignment, and Title (not in the running head).
  • The list of references is introduced with a subhead, uses hanging indents, and is alphabetized correctly.

Put a √ by features that are present, a ? by those that seem missing. Sign your name; the author will want to thank you in her or his acknowledgments.
