Code of Practice

As a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), I abide by their code of practice (CoP), which is endorsed by the SfEP Council and is considered binding on members. The purpose of the SfEP’s code of practice, Ensuring editorial excellence, is to establish standards of best practice for SfEP members and help them maintain them and to encourage good professional relationships. The SfEP summarises the CoP thus:

“Good communication between client/employer and freelance/employee is essential. Clear briefing and the agreement of terms are vital if high standards are to be maintained by both parties, and unsurprisingly they’re emphasised by the CoP.”

“In addition, the CoP includes guidance on: the professional behaviour of both freelance/employee and client/employer; standards for proofreading, editing and project management; and information on web editing, electronic file handling, email etiquette, confidentiality and computer security.”

I base my pricing on the SfEP’s suggested minimum rates; however, because the demands of each job are different, please contact me to discuss the pricing of your project.
