This is the most known form of editing, where I'll check grammar, usage, spelling, punctuation, and other mechanics of style, plus internal consistency of facts. If applicable, also inserting head levels and approximate placement of art; editing tables, figures, index, and lists.

What you will see from copyediting work:


  • A style sheet for your manuscript/work (when applicable) 

  • Corrections of grammar, spelling, and punctuation  

  • Corrections for clarity and consistency, and mark-up of redundancies/repetitions

  • Review of titles, headings, sequence, and table of contents (when applicable)

  • Internal consistency of facts

  • Checking head levels and approximate placement of art

  • Editing tables, figures, index and lists

  • Writing Atl+Text when needed

  • Editing captions, credit lines, running heads

  • Editing front matter and back matter

  • Recommending conscious language changes and addressing document accessibility concerns

This editing takes place on the page, with Track Changes on so you can accept or reject suggestions. When needed, I will offer ideas and give you options (not fixes) to make your lines flow better in the form of comments you can implement, ignore, or resolve.
