Scientific Editing Participates in the 9th IPED Conference

The 9th IPED conference was held this year in Melbourne 8-10 May 2019 on the theme of ‘Beyond the page’. The conference served as an exciting opportunity for editors, researchers, students and authors to connect and learn the best methods in editing and publishing. Many editors from New Zealand, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, Canada, the United States, South Africa and other countries attended the conference.

The conference showcased current professional practice and research and highlighted 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.

As well as the formal and professional development aspects of the conference, there were many opportunities to socialize and network. The IPED conference addressed the following topics:

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

Our colleagues at Scientific Editing actively participated in the conference and focused on very specific subjects such as “The golden rules of IMRaD”, “The art of writing a comprehensive abstract”, and “Who owns the paper”.

The conference delivered thought-provoking and interactive sessions on a wide range of topics as mentioned above. The participants outlined some answers to the key question of how authors can find the best editing service according to their topic.
