1. The editors have to get the main story from the writer and work on it. They usually take some time to understand the various aspects of it and then provide their feedback on it. If any changes are required, they request the writers to make the necessary changes.

2. The editors have to correct the technical errors in the writing including the grammatical mistakes and the inappropriate usage of the language. They also have to verify the facts and figures being mentioned in the story. This is very important as it's the editors who are responsible if there is discrepancy in the information. They have to be careful about it.

3. They have to coordinate with their various team members in order to complete the tasks. They are responsible to meet the deadlines and therefore they make the schedule and decide the deadlines. They also assign the tasks to their juniors and other team members and ensure that the work is done on time with great accuracy.
