I’m interested in assisting with proofreading and copyediting. I have a BA in Philosophy from Boston University (and keep up with scholarship in a few areas) and currently work in open-access advocacy. Further, I am personally interested in increasing, specifically, the availability of openly licensed philosophy texts, whether textbooks, monographs or journals.
Previously, I was a volunteer editor for two distributed projects. For the first, I provided substantial content editing to a CC BY-NC-SA ebook on statistics and data visualization for non-experts (titled Data+Design). And for the second, editorial comments and suggestions on several draft chapters of Creative Commons’ recent book, Made with Creative Commons (CC BY-SA, naturally).
As part of my job, I revise and edit a whole lot of documentation (on policies, programs and procedures) to ensure they are easily understood by a variety of authors, researchers, and students.
I try to supplement professional commitments with calls for volunteers because I think it’s important to support collaborative open projects (like this one) as much as possible. I’m game if you need help!
