General editing and proofreading
You can choose the level of editing you require from the following options:
- Proofreading: fixing typographical, spelling and common grammatical errors; checking in-text references and footnotes; checking numbering of tables, figures, maps, etc.
- Copy editing: proofreading as above plus rewriting at clause level, checking the flow of logic and argument at the sentence and paragraph level.
- Substantive editing: includes proofreading and copy editing plus checking logical argumentation, restructuring at the section and chapter level if needed.
- Formatting: producing consistency in style and layout using Microsoft Word and paragraph styles.
Editing is done in Microsoft Word. I only accept files in doc or docx format. Once I have finished my edit, I will email the file to you, with all changes tracked and questions or queries inserted in comment boxes. Once you have addressed any comments or queries, email the file back to me for the final touches, and then I will email you the completed document.
