What is the Difference Between Copy Editing and Formatting? The formatting service takes care of the document's margins, line spacing, page numbers, and other presentation-type issues. Copy editing, on the other hand, takes care of grammar, punctuation, word choice, etc.
What Type of Editing Do You Do? There are many different types of editing. I offer a copy editing/proofreading service that takes care of everything you will need to have a professional, polished piece of work: Basic grammar such as subject-verb agreement Relative and other pronouns, etc. Correct use of punctuation Correct spacing after punctuation Spelling Hyphenation Capitalization Correct use of italics, boldface, and underlining Correct use of quotation marks as well as punctuation and ellipses within quoted material Formatting of in-text parenthetical citations All other basic editing issues as specified by the APA Manual, MLA Manual, Chicago Manual, or other style guide as needed.
Combining general guidelines from up-to-date manuals of style (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.) with the university or other guidelines you send to me, I work to ensure that the precise
required formatting standards are met.
I can also assist with creating or cleaning up the look of tables, figures, and quote trees.
