SHINING A LIGHT ON SUBSTANCE USE ISSUES: COPYEDITING FOR CCSA

Copyediting services are a longstanding part of our ongoing relationship with the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA). One of the flagship pieces we continue to support is Substance Use in Canada, a research-based publication produced every two years that highlights urgent and priority substance use issues affecting Canadians. The 2018 edition looked at the serious and historically overlooked issue of substance use among older adults. In each case, our team substantively edits the more than 100-page manuscript of the report, helping bring stylistic uniformity across chapters written by different authors. We work closely with CCSA’s production team and subject-matter experts to ensure content is presented logically, accessibly and accurately.

"Since 2007, the Ascribe team has developed the concepts and text for our annual report, edited our flagship Substance Abuse in Canada publication, and provided copyediting and proofreading support on many other materials. They’ve earned the trust of our senior leadership team, and I personally value their discipline in planning and project management."
