Publishing is being transformed by readers’ new passion for ebooks, tablet computers and even mobile phones: business models are adjusting to digital rights management, subscriptions and pay-per-view; marketers are adapting to social media; and editors are streamlining their processes with software tools for cleaning up manuscripts, managing references, repurposing documents and sharing files. Janet Mackenzie will be exploring this digital revolution in a new edition of The Editor’s Companion.

Janet Mackenzie, Distinguished Editor (DE), edited her first book in 1969 and has been at it ever since. An Honorary Life Member and former committee member of the Society of Editors (Vic.), she has represented the society at the national level and also helped to develop the national accreditation scheme for the Institute of Professional Editors.
