Survey: How do editors and proofreaders use social media tools in the context of their work?

 

A survey is being conducted to gain a better understanding of how editors and proofreaders use social media tools in the context of their work. Editors and proofreaders include publishing professionals carrying out structural editing, copyediting or proofreading on any type of publication (books, textbooks, scholarly journals, government and corporate publications, websites, etc.) as a significant part of their everyday role.

This questionnaire will form the basis of a paper to be presented at the 5th National Editors Conference ‘New Horizons for Editing and Publishing’ in September 2011 in Sydney, Australia.
