Editor Services Agreement

An Editor Services Agreement is a document used by two parties where an individual editor or company that provides editing services agrees to edit the work of a client. This Agreement allows the editor and the client to outline the scope of their relationship and describe the specifics of the editing services that will be provided. This document can be used both by clients who wish to hire an editor or company that provides editing services as well as an editor or company who intends to provide those services to a client.

Often, individuals enter into business relationships without having all of the details of the parties' relationship with each other written down. By discussing the specifics of the Agreement ahead of time, both the service provider and the client can make sure that their needs and wishes about the business relationship are known and honored. This document is specifically for services related to someone providing editing services. This website also has a general purpose service agreement that can be used for someone providing a different kind of services.

How to use this document

This document covers all of the important information necessary for an editor or company that provides editing services to enter into a business relationship with a client who needs their work edited including the following details:

  • Pertinent identifying information for all involved parties
  • Specifics of the services provided, including the type(s) of editing that will take place
  • Date and formats in which the work to be edited will be provided to the editor subsequently returned to the client
  • Amount of compensation the editor will receive, including late fees, deposits, and compensation for business-related expenditures as applicable
  • Details about when and how the Agreement will be terminated
  • Adherence to confidentiality and warranty provisions guaranteeing the quality of the editor's work

The editor and the client can discuss the terms of the Agreement and create and sign the final Agreement prior to the work actually beginning. This Agreement can also be created after the work has already begun for the purpose of clarifying and formalizing the relationship between the parties and describing the responsibilities of all involved parties. After inputting the required information, this Agreement is printed out and signed by both Parties, and then kept on file by both parties for the duration of the Agreement as well as for a reasonable period of time thereafter.

Applicable law

All Service Agreements are subject to both federal and state laws that cover general contract principles governing how contracts are created and interpreted by courts. Federal laws may restrict what services can be contracted for (for example, illegal services may not be contracted for) and certain broad categories, like contracting for something that looks more like an employment relationship, but individual state laws may govern the interpretation of the contract in case of a dispute.
