COPY-EDITING

WHAT IS COPY-EDITING?

 

Copy-editing is the preparation of a text for publication, including stylistic, structural, intrusive and substantive editing, where applicable. The copy-editor's task is to ensure that the writer observes the conventions of good writing. The copy-editor ensures that the manuscript's syntax is smooth, punctuation is appropriate and correctly placed, and the writing follows grammatical conventions. 

HOW I CAN HELP

I am a qualified copy-editor with extensive experience working with students, researchers and academics, particularly those for whom English is a second language. Past projects include dissertations, essays, reports, journal articles, papers, college magazines and fundraising material, among others.
