What do you do at the CIC?
As the Editorial Coordinator, I act as the first point of contact for new content submitted to The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering. I scrutinize and review incoming submissions to confirm that they meet the standards of the Journal before passing them along to the Editor-in-Chief to receive his stamp of approval. Later in the publication process, I do a complete copyedit of accepted texts to bring everything in line with the Journal’s editorial standards. I also help coordinate messaging and promotion of the Journal via the official Twitter account, @CanJChemEng.
How has your background led up to this work?
Before taking the position at the Journal, I worked as a freelance editor for several years. In that role I had the opportunity to offer my expertise with language and style formatting to clients of various backgrounds including academic. My role with the Journal allows me to continue doing what I do best: applying my keen eye for detail and passion for language to elevate the submissions of authors and to bring everything in line with the Journal’s editorial standards.
