For many professionals, writing skills are learned while they are on the job. In many cases, they would go by a preferred style or other documents or style guides that help to put a certain style in place. Editing, however, is rarely taught. Worse, the perception most people have of editing is that it is revising or rewriting a work. But the truth is different. Editing gives shape to a document. It helps to perfect and sculpt it. The big question most editors face is: Where does one stop editing a document?

An all too common situation most employees find themselves in is when they decide o edit a document one last time after their team has spent hours, weeks, or months producing it. The more one pores over each line and word; the more the opportunities for setting one small part right. This process of finding errors and inconsistencies never seems to end.

The ways of effectively editing scientific documents to give it solid presentation and shape will be the topic of a webinar that is being organized by MentorHealth, a leading provider of professional trainings for the healthcare industry.

Hope J Lafferty, a board-certified Editor in the Life Sciences who brings more than 20 years' experience as a science editor, will be the speaker at this webinar. Just visit http://www.mentorhealth.com/control/w_product/~product_id=800881LIV...to register for this useful learning session.

Making editing fun

Hope will offer a fun and informative program that helps professionals that write to improve their editing and proofreading skills produce impeccable documents that are error-free and friendlier to read.

All the lessons Hope has learnt during her long career as a science and medical writer and editor will be imparted at this webinar. Hope’s knack of identifying simple solutions to common problems will be in full display at this session. She will equip participants at every level with tools to improve their ability to edit, proofread, and finalize their manuscripts, grants, presentations, and technical documents with greater facility.

Any personnel in the technical areas, such as scientist, researcher, or technical writer, who is required to edit one’s own work; will derive important use from this webinar, which will outline the following:

o  Common problems in writing scientific and technical documents that we need to correct before final approval and submission but that we often overlook

o  Common problems in how we read material that we've read and rewritten many times

o  How to approach documents with fresh eyes and spot mistakes with greater speed and accuracy

o  The importance of planning and scheduling an editorial phase to written projects and how to make the most of the time we have.

Hope will cover the following areas at this webinar:

o  Common Writing Mistakes That Are Easy to Miss

o  Common Problems in How We Review Our Work

o  Best Editorial Practices.
