EDITING SERVICES

TYPES of EDITING AVAILABLE

  • Looks at the overall structure, clarity, and consistency of your work.

  • Includes a comprehensive report on the text that identifies its strengths and weakness. This report also gives detailed suggestions for improvement, including a summary, chapter-by-chapter suggestions (if applicable), and suggestions for restructuring if needed.

CONTENT EDITING
  • Corrects spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax, word usage, etc. while preserving the meaning and voice of the original text.

  • Aligns the text to the correct style (Chicago, MLA, or APA) required by a publisher, OR creates a style sheet as a reference for the self-publishing author.

  • Evaluates basic formatting consistency such as tables, figures, and other images. Does not insert or create formatting.

  • Evaluates quoted material for needed reprint permissions.

  • Edits completed bibliography/works cited for appropriate style and consistency (if applicable).

  • Edits Footnotes or End Notes for cross reference errors and consistency.

  • Provides a list of any textual inconsistencies to be discussed with the author.

COPYEDITING
PROOFREADING
  • Edits final version, called a proof, of your text or manuscript for typographical errors with or without reading against any previous copy, draft, or proofs.

  • Queries and corrects errors or inconsistencies that may have been missed by previous readers.

  • Checks proof against typesetting specifications of the publisher, if provided by the author.

  • Checks overall typesetting consistency such as headings, page numbers, table of contents, image or illustration numbers, footnotes or endnotes, font consistency, margins, inserts, widows and orphans, indentation, etc.

EDITING PACKAGES
  • Full packages include step-by-step editing services to get you from the first draft to the final proof. Or, pick and choose the individual services you need for a custom package.

  • Saves you time and money by having one editor work with you through multiple drafts of your work, rather than starting over with a different editor for each editing service.

  • Reads page proofs or the final text and compiles an alphabetical index of references to names, terms, and concepts in the text to be used as a reference and research tool.

  • Chooses, groups, and consolidates page references under main headings, subheadings, and cross-references to be as concise and user-friendly as possible.
