What is copy-editing?

Copy-editing removes barriers between the reader and what a writer wants to convey

Copy-editing checks for consistent application of house/author style (for example, use of single or double quotation marks, and issues of capitalisation, italics and punctuation).

It also looks at consistency of spelling, and the numbering of illustrations, tables and notes

While checking for consistency, the copy-editor also edits for sense – looking at whether the appropriate choice of word has been made, and whether sections/chapters express meaning clearly.

The copy-editor compares data in tables with their analysis in text; we watch out for bias or overly subjective commentary, while also being aware of issues of copyright and other legal problems that might arise

In short, copy-editing deals with the technical preparation of material for publication.

It is an important stage along the way to producing a finished manuscript: the final stage is proofreading

What is proofreading?

Proofreading is the final stage of manuscript preparation

Proofreading is carried out on a document that has already been edited and copy-edited – in other words, when all other aspects of the work have been completed

All titles should be standardised, all page numbering and notes should be in place, all figures and illustrations should be finalised

The proofreader ensures that typographical elements have been consistently applied: we look at heading types, for example, and at aspects of presentation – word breaks, hyphenation, positioning of figures, running heads, etc.

We also ensure that page references, cross references and spelling styles are correct and complete

If you are unsure about what your manuscript requires, please just send in a sample of your work.

We have the qualifications and experience to assess the writing project and advise you accordingly
