Course Description

The main goal of this course is to increase participants’ skill in substantive editing—that is, editing that moves beyond mechanics to address aspects such as content, logic, and organization. Topics will include definitions and components of substantive editing, structures of common types of medical articles, standard guidelines for articles reporting major types of medical research, and the author-editor relationship. The course also will provide an overview of publication ethics, especially as related to medical editing. Course activities will include editing exercises, case discussions, and conversations with substantive editors and others. In addition, participants will explore resources useful in continuing to learn about substantive editing, publication ethics, and related subjects.
