The visual elements of a document matter as much as the text. If visual elements lack consistency with one another or with the surrounding text, it frustrates readers and hampers comprehension. In this webinar, participants will learn how to put Standard D12 of the Professional Editorial Standards (“Ensure all tables, visual elements, and multimedia are consistent with surrounding text and are consistently presented”) into practice.
Introduction to STEM Editing will instruct editors new to the field how to identify, review, and revise STEM content. Participants will learn how to correct jargon, address self-plagiarism, edit visual elements such as figures and tables, and work with both authors and publishers throughout the publishing process.
