Work on the revised edition of Australian standards for editing practice has now concluded, following the workshops held from December 2011 to February 2012 and Canberra's dedicated meeting in October 2011. The national facilitator and the coordinators from each society worked hard from March to July to refine the document, through seven teleconferences and additional work by individual members, distributing the various versions to the workshop participants for feedback at each stage.
The Standards Working Group thanks all society members who participated in this process. Your comments have all been carefully considered in finalising the revised edition.
Now it's time for members of each society to vote on acceptance of the final document. On acceptance, Australian standards for editing practice, second edition, will be designed for both print and online versions, and made available to all societies for distribution.
