One should remember that this profession is appropriate for those who are very diligent and can spend hours in front of the screen. These are the main traits of the character of a person for whom the profession is suitable: responsibility, logic, brilliant memory, being able to concentrate. Literate oral and written speech is also needed. Besides, an editor has to be a so-called “T-shaped” specialist having deep knowledge in one particular sphere (for example, journalism or philology) and superficial knowledge in a great number of other fields. Thus, an editor should be familiar with economics, jurisprudence, copyright and things like that. As one knows, the experience is the best teacher that means that if you want to become an editor, you should try again and again. Start trying right now! Try to edit your papers.

  • Do not interrupt for editing while writing a text. You can lose your idea that is why, if you are writing an article, continue writing till the end (of the text or your thought).
  • If you are not on a tight schedule, put aside your article for some time, as it can happen that your eyes get used to the text and it is difficult to notice mistakes. It will be much easier to find and correct them in a little while.
  • Read your article aloud. It will help you to find and correct tautology, unnecessary words, and sentences, unpleasant clusters of consonants.
  • Check the article structure. Pay attention to such problems as lack of coherence, repeating the same ideas for several times, lack of balance of different parts of your article (for example, one point of the plan is described in three paragraphs, while another one is expressed only in one sentence).
  • Try to find the sentences that are not suitable according to the style (an article for a magazine aimed at average readers should not consist of sentences crammed with scientific terms). Get rid of unwieldy sentences as well.
  • Use dictionaries. If you have any doubt as for meaning or usage of a word, check it in a dictionary.
  • Print your article and reread one more time. In some cases, it is even easier to find mistakes in a printed text.
