The figure of the e-editor is a result of the incorporation of new technologies into the publishing sector, as well as the rise of digital media. This profile is responsible for the edition (correction of style, grammar, spelling; adjustment of written text to alloted space; selection of the contents of greatest interest, etc.) in newspapers and electronic publications on the Internet. The e-editor can also be the person responsible for the contents of these publications or electronic spaces and even for the information that many theme web portals offer to their public. The profile of the e-editor responds to a specialization in the field of journalism and is differentiated from that of digital journalist who, in general, is not dedicated to the design of contents.


  • If there is not a specialised post such as a contents manager, work at times with designers and technical specialists on the construction and structure of the digital support on which contents will be presented.
  • Coordinate (in consensus with the project manager) the activities of writers, journalists, etc., working on the publication.
    Determine delivery times, the length of the texts, their presentation and style, and be in touch with writers to solve any possible problems that might arise.
  • Revise, assess and modify articles, reports and all types of informative material so that it adjusts to the criteria for publication.
  • Verify the truthfulness of the contents using different sources of information.
    Perform the final check that the material to be published is correct.
  • Participate in the definition of the graphic style and presentation of the published texts.
  • Work together with designers and programmers to give the most suitable form to texts, images and resources accompanying them.
  • Once the editing process is completed, publish the contents on the Internet, local area networks or other multimedia supports.
    Publish them as often as required by the publication frequency (minutes, days, months, etc.) using contents management systems that enable editing and publishing.
  • Revise and maintain published contents.
    Emphasize articles of greater interest and ensure that the website is agile and that the contents change regularly.
    Also think about ways to promote them.
