Earlier this month, six Oxford PharmaGenesis editors attended sessions of the online Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) conference. A range of topics were presented, including use of macros in editing, style sheets, digital marketing and inclusive language. Some of the presentations provided essential ‘nuts and bolts’ information, while others took a more in-depth approach and provoked some lively discussion.
Online networking sessions offered an opportunity for social interaction, with some sessions having a particular theme, such as sharing tips on working efficiently.
Although successfully run online this year, it is hoped that the next conference in the autumn of 2021 will be able to take place at the planned venue in Glasgow, and with a return to an even wider array of topics presented in parallel sessions.
It has been an exciting year for the CIEP. As well as gaining chartered status, the institute has recently appointed a chief executive officer to help to move the organization to the next phase of its development.
Our editorial colleagues look forward to seeing further progress in the coming year and to participating in the 2021 CIEP conference.
