Editors Victoria publishes an online directory of freelance editors known as the Freelance Register. The Register helps organisations improve the standard of their publications by putting them in touch with editors who have the necessary skills and experience. The Register is used by hundreds of corporations, government departments and agencies, and non-government organisations, as well as publishers.

Those listed in the Register are members of Editors Victoria, who have provided information about themselves. Editors Victoria publishes this information in good faith and with due care, but cannot offer recommendations or give any guarantee that a particular editor is suitable for a particular task. We encourage all organisations and individuals to look for an editor with appropriate skills and experience for the work, and to ask for examples of previous work and references.

Some members of Editors Victoria are Accredited Editors (AE) or Distinguished Editors (DE), marked with a star. Accredited Editors have demonstrated their professional competence and understanding of editing standards, skills and knowledge by passing the Institute of Professional Editors accreditation exam. For more about accreditation, see the IPEd website.
