Definition: Project editing

A project editor manages the entire project and may hire all members of the editorial team (excluding the author). Moreover, in contrast to production editing, project editing may also include developmental responsibilities. The following duties are often the responsibility of the project editor:

  • Scheduling and tracking.
  • Reviewing all aspects of the editorial and production process and enforcing consistent standards throughout.
  • Ensuring communication among all members of the editorial team, including the designer and those who create the illustrations and diagrams, if appropriate.
