Freelance registers are maintained by the branches of IPEd.

Accredited and distinguished editors

Accredited editors have demonstrated their professional competence and understanding of editing standards, skills and knowledge by passing the IPEd accreditation exam. Distinguished editors were nominated by their societies to prepare for and assess the first two accreditation exams in 2008 and 2009.

Clients and employers are encouraged to explore all the listings below. Most entries detail individual editors’ disciplines, interests and areas of expertise.
