The copy-editor is the vital link between author, publisher, typesetter and reader, and ensures that written material is clear, accurate and correct; that everything is there, and in the right place; that no part of the text contradicts another part; that nothing in the text will create legal or inclusivity problems; and that the copy is thoroughly prepared for trouble-free typesetting. Good copy-editing is invisible – the reader is free to concentrate on content without being distracted by errors of fact, internal inconsistencies, ambiguities, grammatical slips that obscure the meaning, or howlers of phrasing.
