Handbook for Journalists. Revised.
Copperud, Roy H.
This handbook was developed for the University of Southern California "Daily Trojan" student newspaper staff and the School of Journalism. It is a compendium of suggestions based on the problems that inexperienced reporters, copyreaders, and new staff members encounter. Contents include "In General," which discusses censorship, responsibility, and standards on the "Daily Trojan"; "Reporting," which examines the role of the reporter, journalistic accuracy, and information gathering; "Copyreading," which reviews editing policy and rules; "Pictures," which stresses accuracy in cutlines and the importance of cropping; "Proofreading," which treats the kinds of corrections that may be made on proofs; and "Stylebook," which sets down principles of style to ensure consistency.
