Updated Professional Editorial Standards from Editors Canada

Editors Canada has just made the third update to their Professional Editorial Standards (PES), reflecting the digital and accessibility issues that are the editor’s reality today. There are 8 entirely new standards and only 4 of the 99 standards have to do with grammar or punctuation.

The PES document is available free on the Editors Canada website.

UPDATE (June 19): EC has released a video discussing the changes. Pro tip: pause the video, then scroll ahead to read each slide to finish this in under 5 min.
