Page Check/Review

This is a final edit before publication to pick up any small typos and minor punctuation errors. A Page Check/Review is the simplest form of edit and only includes a one-time read through of the document to find and correct any errors left over after previous edits.

Proofreading

The EditFast proofreader will check the following items:

  • Spelling, typos
  • Punctuation
  • Grammatical, typographical, and/or style errors will be corrected
  • Acronyms: Are they defined at first mention? If there is a list of acronyms, are all acronyms properly listed? Does the list entry match what is in the text?
  • Line-break hyphenation
  • Page breaks
  • Figures and tables
  • Text footnotes
  • As well, the proofreader will be reading the manuscript with an editorial eye. If any passages are still particularly difficult to understand, some light copyediting will be done.
  • Of course, the specific requirements of each proofreading job vary. The editor will pay close attention to the objectives and duties as detailed by the EditFast administration and in accordance with the wishes of the client. Additional options such as checking references for proper formatting to a specific style (APA, Chicago Manual of style etc.) should be discussed with the editor and may incur additional charges.

  • Checking for consistency of mechanics and internal consistency of facts
  • Rewriting for promotional and/or advertising value
  • Marking head levels and approximate placement of art
  • May include providing or changing system of citations
  • Writing or editing captions and/or credit lines
  • May also include negotiating changes with author.
  • Of course, the specific requirements of each job may vary. The editor will pay close attention to the objectives and duties as detailed by the EditFast administration and in accordance with the wishes of the client.

Substantial Edit

  • Clarifying and/or reorganizing a manuscript for content, structure, meaning, eliminating jargon, smoothing language, and other non-mechanical line-by-line editing.
  • May include checking or correcting for reading level
  • Creating or recasting tables and/or figures
  • Of course, the specific requirements of each job may vary. The editor will pay close attention to the objectives and duties as detailed by the EditFast administration and in accordance with the wishes of the client.

Complete Rewrite

Includes a proofreading plus:

  • Creating a new manuscript or parts of a manuscript on the basis of content and research supplied by an author.
  • May include some research and writing of original material.
  • According to the needs of the author the document will be rewritten entirely making changes in structure, organization, grammar, word usage, and anything else that the editors feel is necessary to make the document professionally acceptable.
  • Research and fact checking will also be included if needed but the original purpose and the author's intent will be adhered to or enhanced.
  • A complete rewrite will take more time and effort than any other type of editing but if you wish to present a polished, professional document ready for publication then this may be what the document needs.
  • Of course, the specific requirements of each job may vary. The editor will pay close attention to the objectives and duties as detailed by the EditFast administration and in accordance with the wishes of the client.
