Dick Margulis said:

There are all kinds of editors. Look at the masthead of, say, Time or
Newsweek, for example, or a scholarly journal. A copyeditor who
proofreads your work and checks your punctuation is not doing the work
of a senior editor who sets the direction and tone of a series of books; selects and negotiates with authors; manages a staff of assistant editors, researchers, and production editors; takes overall
responsibility for delivering a product on time that is accurate,
complete, well-designed and produced, and free of material that exposes the company's management to ridicule or legal liability.

Tony Markatos responds:

Dick,

I can envision the above for a scenario for an 'in-house' senior editor. But, do many independent contractor/consultant editors perform such tasks?
