« on: March 28, 2019, 12:57:12 PM »
Of all the copyeditor’s duties, editing for accuracy is probably the most important. A newspaper that is inaccurate soon loses its credibility. The copyeditor’s responsibilities during editing a copy include:
1.   Ensuring accuracy
2.   Trimming unnecessary words
3.   Protecting and polishing the language
4.   Correcting inconsistencies
5.   Making the story conform to style
6.   Eliminating libelous statement
7.   Eliminating passage in poor state
8.   Making certain the story is readable and complete.
