National Survey of Editors 2014 report now complete

Posted on: 23 March 2015

The report includes a profile of the typical Australian editor, what their qualifications and training are, the industries and professions employing them and their editing income.

A specific section just for freelancers provides average hourly rates, methods of quoting and more. The report also includes information on the professional development needs of editors, as well as the services editors would like from IPEd.

The survey had 391 respondents from 1495 members of societies of editors (26%). This is the first time the same survey has been run simultaneously through the societies of editors, providing society-specific data, which has then be used to compile the national report. The report and appendices therefore provide national and state information.

The National Survey of Editors 2014 report can be viewed in the members-only area of the IPEd website, together with responses to some of the most interesting open-ended questions.
