What's Up @ TEC! July/August Edition
Jul 22, 2014 - By Beth McAuley
It is mid-July and FIFA has come and gone (sorry, Argentina)!
In June, we attended several informative professional conferences and reported our findings in a series of blogs: the Berkshire Conference on Women Historians; the Editors’ Association of Canada’s Conference; and the Indexing Society’s Annual Conference.
Team editor Lesley-Anne ran her first 5K ever (congratulations, Lesley-Anne!) and is training for her second run of the season. Our intern Karen completed her three-months with us; and we’ve hired Melissa to assist with copy editing an 800-page manuscript.
Here’s a look at some of the other amazing projects keeping us busy this summer.

NEW ACADEMIC COPY-EDITING PROJECTS
*Academic Journal Editing
We completed the copy editing and layout of the Canadian Journal of Education, vol. 37, no. 1, now online. We are pleased to announce that we will be working with CJE on the forthcoming issues over the summer and into the fall.
As well, we copy edited several journal papers for clients on the subjects of outdoor recreation sustainability, corporate social responsibility and taxation, the environmental effects of mining in Malaysia, and maternal-focused government policies in Russia to offset the declining birth rate.
*Academic Book Manuscripts
Some of the exciting projects we’ve completed include a history of rock ’n’ roll in America, an analysis of the Canadian Charter Revolution, and a history of the Court of Appeal in Ontario.
A few new projects that have landed on our desks include the first volume of letters documenting the life and times of a nineteenth-century Mennonite in Russia (the 800-pager), and the role of senior women editors in the Canadian newspaper industry.
We are proofreading an anthology analyzing the cost of health care around the world, and preparing a back-of-the-book index for a comprehensive study of federal research and development policy in Canada.
This summer and into the fall, we will be editing and proofreading Explore St. Mark's Coptic Museum: An Illustrated Introduction, being compiled and written by Helene Moussa, Volunteer Curator.
BUSINESS COPY EDITING & PROOFREADING
We continue to work on the writing and development of an online instruction manual for Supply Chain Management Canada. We have also been proofing materials for a new business client in the digital signage industry.
COPY EDITING & PROOFREADING MAGAZINES
We copy edited and proofread the summer editions of Dolce Vita and City Life magazines, and completed a rush proofread for our new client U of T Medicine Magazine.
