Editing of Faculty Work

Faculty should let the editor know approximately one month before they intend to submit a manuscript for editing. The following conditions apply to the editing of faculty work:


  • The editing service for faculty is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • Editing of student work will take priority over faculty work. Thus, at certain times—particularly the period from April through June, which is set aside for the editing of master’s theses—the editor may not be available for editing of any faculty work.

Eligible Works

  • Editing of faculty work will be limited to manuscripts for which a current faculty member of the Atatürk Institute for Modern Turkish History at Bogaziçi University is a primary [co-]author.
  • The editor will provide editing services to faculty for peer-reviewed academic articles or chapters in edited, academic volumes; that is to say, texts of up to around 10,000-12,000 words.
  • Faculty work submitted for editing may include papers for presentation at a conference; articles being submitted for peer review; final versions of articles have already been accepted for publication; or chapters in edited, academic volumes.
  • Whole books, personal, non-academic, and/or editorial works are not eligible for in-house editing.
  • The editor will provide editing services once per faculty member per academic year on average.

Scope of Editing

  • Editing will be done in accordance with ethical guidelines for academic work, and will involve proofreading, copy editing, and stylistic editing, the latter largely accomplished through querying rather than correction.
  • Editing will include one back-and-forth iteration with the author. The editor will not be responsible for editing successive revisions of a paper (e.g., in the case of a directive to revise-and-resubmit a paper).
  • With the exception of minor, typographic and punctuation errors in parenthetical or short form citations, the editor will not edit bibliographic citations, lists of references or works cited, and/or bibliographies.

Submission Procedures

  • Faculty should let the editor know approximately one month before they intend to submit a manuscript for editing.
  • Faculty should submit their manuscript in Microsoft Word format to the editor via e-mail. Editing will be done using the Track Changes feature, and the work will be returned in Microsoft Word format.

As with students, faculty will be given a reference number with which they can check the status of their manuscript in the editing queue.
