Copyediting deals with the mechanics of writing and typing. It includes careful proofreading for errors in grammar, punctuation, capital vs. lowercase letters, and inconsistencies in editorial decisions. It also catches those embarrassing typos that may actually communicate the opposite of what you intended!

Stylistic Revision makes your document a pleasure to read by creating clear, concise, cohesive writing. The revised writing will contain smoother transitions and more precise, captivating language, and it will be free of unintended ambiguities and awkwardness.

Academic-Format Editing ensures that you have followed the format manual used in your industry. I am well versed in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the MLA Style Manual. I will correct references, in-text citations, tables, abstracts, titles and level headings, and pagination, and I will follow all of the specific recommendations of your manual plus the school's guidelines. I am also familiar with The Chicago Manual of Style (15th edition), the AAA format used by the American Anthropological Association, The Bluebook used in law and the AMA Manual of Style used in medicine.
