Our Proofreading and Copyediting Service
We offer a comprehensive proofreading and copyediting service as standard. In other words, your paper gets the royal treatment at a competitive price.
Your paper receives a thorough edit, including the correction of any:
- Typographic errors
- Punctuation errors
- Spelling mistakes
- Problems with syntax
- Grammatical errors
- Problems with tense
- Word choice issues
- Inconsistent use of terms
- Problems with sentence structure
- Inconsistencies in citations within the text (as per the journal’s style requirements).
The result is clear, concise and correct text.
Our standard service includes the main text of the manuscript and figure/table captions. The inclusion of the reference list is an additional option as detailed below.
Additional editing service options include:
- Cross-checking that the reference list is correctly formatted and all references in the list are referred to in the text (and vice versa).
- Text in tables and figures.
The Editing Process
The vast majority of our editing work is done in Microsoft Word using the track changes feature. Our changes are marked in the text and a file is saved with a filename_edited.doc name and returned to you via email.
We ask that you go through the edited document carefully and accept/reject changes one at a time. We also insert comments into the document where appropriate to flag issues and to ask for clarification.
You are, of course, free to accept or reject the suggested changes as you see fit.
If you have other requirements/file types we will make every effort to accommodate your work flow.
