We are digitising significant Australian works of fiction, non-fiction, drama and poetry that have gone out of print (under agreements with the copyright-holders, of course).
This is a crime novel of about 90,000 words. It has been processed with Optical Character Recognition and exported as a Word file, spell-checked and with common errors addressed, but will need to be checked against original scans for typographical and formatting errors, and any corrections will need to be marked up.
No rewriting or copy-editing is needed, just making sure the documents match the original — though obvious typos in the original should be marked up.
Excellent attention to detail and familiarity with spelling/grammar/punctuation conventions will be very helpful. We are looking for bids of $400 or under please, as that is the limit of project funding.
