Here is a fun guide to what academics really mean from the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
Formed in November 1988, the SfEP now has about 1,600 members and associates (mostly in the UK) providing editorial services to publishers and a wide range of companies, government agencies and other bodies. SfEP courses cater for the whole range of experience, from beginners to established editors who need to update and extend their existing skills. For those looking for a professional editor, proofreader or project manager, the online SfEP Directory of Editorial Services provides contact information for more than 440 SfEP members plus details of the skills, subjects and services they offer. An efficient search facility enables users to pinpoint those with the required skills quickly and easily. The Society provides training and professional qualifications, and publishes a directory of members' services as well as the award-winning bi-monthly magazine Editing Matters. It holds an annual conference that is open to members and non-members.
