The Purpose and Rationale Behind the “Guidelines for Ethical Editing of Student Texts”

Join Editors Toronto on Tuesday, November 23, at 7:00 pm EST via Zoom for “The Purpose and Rationale Behind the ‘Guidelines for Ethical Editing of Student Texts.’”

To find the answers, join us this month and learn about the purpose of Editors Canada’s “Guidelines for Ethical Editing of Student Texts” and the reason for its recent revision.
