Indian Copyeditors Forum (ICF) is an informal Facebook group for Indian editors and its aim is to share knowledge, ideas, thoughts, and resources. Formed on June 28, 2015, the group is managed by Vivek Kumar and has 2866 members as of June 18, 2023. ICF has a website and is also on LinkedIn and Twitter.
ICF encourages freelance and full-time editors (necessarily Indian although exceptions can be made in rare cases) to engage in active networking and hopes to create a culture of meaningful and sustained interaction. The Forum invites editors to share successes and pitfalls of freelancing, provide leads, give warnings (always discreetly), ask questions, and discuss oddly written sentences, other editorial bugbears, and any other professional concerns. In addition to editors, abstractors, designers, indexers, manuscript evaluators, project managers, proofreaders, translators, typesetters, and writers are welcome to join.
