Katharine O’Moore-Klopf, a veteran copy editor who lives in East Setauket, was recently selected as the winner of the American Copy Editors’ 2013 Robinson Prize.

O’Moore-Klopf received the award at the 18th annual ACES national conference on March 21 in Las Vegas, according to the organization.

The prize is named for Pam Robinson, a Huntington resident who co-founded ACES and served the society’s first president. Up until recently Robinson worked as an editor for Patch, before accepting a position with another organization.

The Robinson Prize “recognizes substantial contributions to the craft of copy editing and excellence in overall copy editing skills,” according to ACES.

A long-time freelancer, O’Moore-Klopf specializes in medical editing, and a board-certified editor in the life sciences. Clients include foreign-language doctors and other scientists who publish work in English-language journals, according to ACES.

In late April, O’Moore-Klopf will teach at the Jishuitan Orthopaedic Forum in Beijing, helping young physicians write better English and navigate the U.S. journal-publishing system, according to ACES.

“It is enormously satisfying to help authors who are non-native English speakers communicate their research to their peers worldwide,” she writes on her website.
