Fact sheets

Page owner: Information director

Our fact sheets boost your learning about editing and proofreading. Many support the development of editing and proofreading skills; others delve into how to work as an editorial professional in publishing or communications. They are complemented by our focus papers, which explore aspects of English language and grammar, being an editor, and publishing more widely.

Learn from leading writers and language professionals

Learning from others is at the heart of the CIEP community. Most of our fact sheets are written by CIEP members, who have distilled their experience into short but jam-packed learning resources for you. Other fact sheets and our focus papers are written by influential writers and language professionals who are leading the way in their field.

Who can access CIEP practice resources?

Some of our resources are free and public. Anyone is welcome to read them.

If you are a freelance editor or proofreader, you may find some of the free resources useful to pass to clients to explain what you do, especially our free quick guide to using editorial professionals.

The rest of our resources are free to our members, and can be purchased by non-members.

Free copies of all our fact sheets and guides are a great reason to join us as an individual or corporate member.
