Academic companies have specific criteria when they are looking to hire editors for their support teams. One of the things they try to ensure is that they hire scholars from various disciplines. This is so that they can have historians edit history papers and scientists edit science projects. Subject matter expertise is essential for ensuring the accuracy of an academic work. Each discipline has its own requirements for the way scholarly works are to be published. Only someone who has studied and worked in that discipline can know the nuances of how a project report needs to be written in that field.
