Rebecca Burton is an excellent editor; she is knowledgeable, patient and has a consistent eye for detail. I consider myself an accurate writer, but she found not only things I had missed, but also things I was not aware of. It was reassuring to have someone of her skill working on my manuscripts to produce two books I am proud of (Empire Girls: The Colonial Heroine Comes of Age and Changing the Victorian Subject). She was also unfailingly pleasant to work with. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Working with Rebecca Burton on Publishing Research in English as an Additional Language: Practices, Pathways and Potentials, a volume I co-edited with Margaret Cargill, was one of the most satisfying experiences I have had with a publishing editor. Rebecca combines tact and meticulousness with the ability to gently nudge authors into making the necessary changes to their texts. I know all the contributors to the volume felt, as I did, that their chapters had been greatly improved by Rebecca’s suggested corrections and modifications. It was wonderful for us all to feel we were in such safe hands.

I was fortunate enough to have Rebecca Burton as the Editor of my recent text, SIDS Sudden Infant and Early Childhood Death: The Past, the Present and the Future … I have been involved with a wide range of publishers over the years and am delighted to be able to say that working with Rebecca was a pleasure. The book progressed very well right from the beginning, with a lot of consultation and discussion which has resulted in, I think, a very impressive-looking volume.

I recommend Rebecca Burton as an editor with remarkable inter-cultural sensitivity as well as strong skills in preparing text for publication and negotiating with authors of varying levels of experience. She edited the book Sally Burgess and I published in 2017 — Publishing Research in English as an Additional Language: Practices, Pathways and Potentials — and worked effectively and graciously with chapter authors from many language and cultural backgrounds, maintaining the authors’ original voices while enhancing clarity and ensuring the required consistency.
