Types of Editing

I offer three different types of editing, as follows:

Heavy
  • detailed comments to improve the structure and style of your work
  • tips on how to best organise your work
  • significant changes made to many sentences with the aim of presenting your ideas as clearly as possible
  • normally completed as a separate round before a final copyedit
  • sometimes called a developmental/structural edit

This is sometimes referred to as a developmental or structural edit. A line-edit lies on the boundary between heavy and medium.

Medium
  • checking grammar and technical aspects of language
  • ensuring your ideas are communicated clearly and consistently
  • ensuring your work is written in a consistent and appropriate style and voice
  • consistent formatting, using the Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) style guide or any other guide you require
  • sometimes called copyediting, or at the heavier end of medium: line- or style- editing
  • text of publishable quality with professional printing presses/academic journals

Note: This is the most popular service I provide

Light
  • checking grammar and technical aspects of language
  • ensuring your ideas are communicated clearly and consistently
  • ensuring there are no large inconsistencies of style and voice
  • consistent formatting, using the Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) style guide or any other guide you require
  • sometimes called light copyediting
  • text of a suitable quality for assessed student theses/dissertations etc.
