Contracts for Editing and Indexing
An email agreement is usually sufficient for editing services, but you may wish to have a formal contract for the service you require. I will generate a contract based on the Editors’ Association of Canada Standard Freelance Editorial Agreement. You will find the Agreement in PDF, Word and WordPerfect formats on the EAC web site (link below).
“The Standard Freelance Editorial Agreement (created by EAC in 1985 and updated in 1999) is a template for spelling out the nature and terms of an agreement between an editor and a client. It details editorial responsibilities; specifies the agreed fees, reimbursements and deadlines; and states what terms shall apply if either party terminates the contract before completion. Schedule A clearly defines various editorial activities so that the editor and the client can agree unambiguously on the work to be done. The completed form is a binding legal document.”
