9th IPEd National Editors Conference

Posted on: 06 September 2018

The biennial conference is an exciting opportunity for editors and other publishing professionals, researchers, students and associates to connect, learn and celebrate best practice in editing and publishing.

In 2019, the conference will showcase current professional practice and research, highlighting emerging trends in editing and publishing across platforms as well as across the range of professional roles and modes in which editors contribute to the publishing process.

In addition to the formal and professional development aspects of the conference, there will be many opportunities to socialise and network, including a welcome cocktail party, the Gala Dinner, tours and intimate breakfast and dinner gatherings.

The conference now invites expressions of interest from editors, indexers and other publishing professionals, researchers, students and associates to present ideas, topics and debates related to editorial practice and the business of editing and publishing. Expressions of interest must address the theme of the conference, 'Beyond the page', and any of the following topics:

  • Best practice/innovative practices in editing and publishing
  • Fads, trends and emerging directions in editing and publishing
  • Research relevant to editing and publishing
  • Editing across platforms – print, electronic, online, audiovisual and other formats
  • Trends in information and communications technologies
  • Editing for accessibility
  • Editing within and across genres
  • Editing in education
  • Academic editing
  • Ethics in editing
  • Translation, reversioning and ghost writing: ethical and practical considerations for editors
  • Professional practice and professional development
  • Managing and marketing your small business for success
  • Wellbeing and occupational health and safety for editors
  • Editors as readers: for the love of words.

Expressions of interest (up to 250 words) must be submitted online by 30 November 2018. All submissions will undergo formal review, and the conference committee reserves the right to select papers appropriate to the program.
