1.9: Editing and design of tables (Science Editors' Handbook)

As a science editor, you will be confronted with tables that your authors have prepared and incorporated into their documents; very rarely will you be required to prepare a table from scratch. Given a table as a fait accompli, two categories of editors will look at it differently: the immediate concerns of science editors, the editors responsible for the science, will be different from those of scientific copy-editors, who are responsible for preparing scientific texts for publication. This chapter touches on the concerns of science editors but focuses mainly on what scientific copy-editors do with data tables.
