Glossary of editorial and publishing terms

This glossary is based on terms used in our proofreading and copyediting suites of courses, and as part of everyday professional practice in editing and proofreading. They shouldn’t be viewed as the only terms to use, the ‘correct’ or ‘right’ ones; there are alternatives to many of them.  

If you’d like to suggest any editorial terms for this glossary, contact [email protected].
