Scholarly Journal Editing: Suicide, Euthanasia, and the Psychiatrist


Transmittal Memo || Manuscript Edits

In Spring 2014, I edited a scholarly manuscript titled “Suicide, Euthanasia, and the Psychiatrist.”

This project was the primary source of development for my skills in copyediting and content editing. Through editing this manuscript I also gained familiarity with Microsoft Word’s track changes function as well as how to query authors and write transmittal memos.

Note: This manuscript was edited for the purposes of San Diego State University’s RWS 501: Editing. We were given a first draft version with names changed to edit. The actual article was published in 1998 in Philosophy, Psychology, and Psychiatry and can be found here
