Optimizing the output of a freelance editing model: Value added by an in-house reviewing team

Optimizing the output of a freelance editing model: Value added by an in-house reviewing team

Excerpt from abstract

In recent years, many journal editorial departments have begun to employ freelance editors rather than an exclusively in-house team. Although a freelance editing model offers greater editor availability and subject-area expertise, it necessitates better quality control. We hypothesize that while a freelance model is best equipped to offer subject-area expertise, a uniformly trained, centralized team of reviewers can help standardize the editing quality and ensure consistency in style. To test this hypothesis, we assessed the value an in-house reviewing team can add to a freelance editing model.
