Copyediting Service

I offer a comprehensive copyediting service that includes:

  • copyediting,
  • journal-specific formatting,
  • reference formatting,
  • mathematical typesetting,
  • help with responding to peer reviewers’ comments,
  • and free, unlimited Q&A.

The “copyediting” part is inclusive of two editing passes: In the first editing pass, I focus on understanding your manuscript. In the second editing pass, I focus on journal-specific formatting, reference formatting, mathematical typesetting, figures, tables, headings, and any other remaining editorial matters.

The following checks are included in the copyediting service:

  • Call out lapses in logic, missing information, mislabelled information, and wrong information
  • Catch bias, politically incorrect language, potential offensive language, copyright problems, and potential libel
  • Check for factually incorrect statements
