I provide a range of editing services for your report, manuscript or thesis.
Editing to ensure correctness, accuracy, consistency, and completeness. It includes
editing for grammar, spelling, punctuation, and usage
checking for consistency and continuity of mechanics and facts
editing tables, figures, and lists
developing a style sheet or following one that is provided
correcting or querying general information that should be checked for accuracy
Editing to clarify meaning, ensure coherence and flow, and refine the language. It includes:
establishing or maintaining the language level appropriate for the intended audience, medium, and purpose
adjusting the length and structure of sentences and paragraphs
establishing or maintaining tone, mood, style, and authorial voice or level of formality
Assessing and shaping draft material to improve its organization and content. Changes may be suggested to or drafted for the writer. Structural editing may include:
revising, reordering, cutting, or expanding material
writing original material
determining whether permissions are necessary for third-party material
recasting material that would be better presented in another form, or revising material for a different medium (such as revising print copy for web copy)
Costs for editing vary depending on the level of editing required. Please contact me to discuss the details of your project, and I can provide a more accurate estimate.
