Assistant editors work in various offices. They may work in newspapers, magazines, advertising agencies, public offices releasing official newsletters, or private businesses. Assistant editors perform editorial duties that are similar to the editor-in-chief but they cannot finalize the work that they edit. The articles that pass through their scrutiny must still be edited by the editor-in-chief before being finalized for layout and publication. Assistant editors work closely with writers and section editors to ensure that the articles are well-polished and have accurate facts. They give assistance to editors also help improve the organizational relations and give helpful tips to writers.
