Question: Identify types of editors and their roles in a typical newspaper publishing house. The following are types of editors in a newspaper publishing room and the roles they undertake in producing a newspaper. Editors- in- chief Sometimes called editors at large or just editors. These people are responsible for creating and maintaining the voice and standard of publication. Often at the highest editorial level, they manage not only the look and the tone of the final product (with other departments as necessary) but other editors’ freelancers as well. Online Editor People in this position are usually a mix of all above editors with specialized knowledge in web copy. In addition to assigning and editing a story, online editors also format the copy, look for relevant links to include in the text, source artwork to accompany the story and publish it to their website Acquisition Editor This title is often found in book publishing but similar tasks are performed by associate and section editors at newspapers and magazines. These editors search for new writers, stories, or manuscripts, and decide whether submissions and pitches have a chance at the editing or end up at the trash Developmental/substantive editor. Found commonly in educational and book publishing. Developmental editors guide a writer from the inception of an idea to the finished product. In many cases they come up with concepts and assign them to writers. It is the developmental editor to look at the ‘’big picture of the work rather than the fine details. Sometimes development editors are also substantive editors who also make large changes, but tend to work on finished drafts. At this level, problems in structure, coherence, and consistency are addressed. If editing fiction the substantive editor examines plot flow, themes characters, and character development. With nonfiction substantive editor look at the editor look at the section flow, facts presented, and the strength of messages/arguments. Copy Editor Copy editors are primarily concerned with nits and bolts of a piece; grammar, word choice, punctuation, and spelling. They also ensures that each piece adheres to the style and guideline set by commissioning publisher/ client. Some copyeditors may also be required to proofread, check facts and write titles or headlines.
