Copy Editing

Copy editing removes mistakes and inconsistencies, usually in conjunction with a style guide or style manual. We will concentrate on language, spelling and punctuation in order to achieve consistency of style and layout; the checking of references, illustrations, tables, headings, sequences and links are all included in this stage.
