Copyediting makes sure that the author's raw text, is corrected in aspects of spelling and grammar. Copyediting also involves, among other things, ensuring that the text flows properly and nothing is missing or redundant, that sentences and paragraphs are uncomplicated and of adequate length and that the consistency of characters and plots is maintained. A copy-editor also ensures that illustrations support the text and have appropriate captions.
If you choose this service, a professional editor will review the manuscript you provide and suggest corrections to it. You may then choose to accept or reject these suggestions.
How It Works
Send us your manuscript by email or through utitlities like yousendit.com.
After receiving your edited manuscript, use Microsoft Word to "accept" or "reject" the suggested changes and choose whether to incorporate them into your final manuscript.
It is important that your manuscript is finalized and completed in all aspects before it is submitted for copy editing. Later changes to the manuscript may entail further charges.
This is only a rough estimate. Actual turnaround times may vary depending upon the complexity of the subject matter covered in the manuscript and the time the author takes to respond to the editor's queries.
