Copy Editing
Structural Editing

Copy Editing: I carefully read your paper, twice through, and:

  • Correct grammar, punctuation, spelling & word use
  • Polish & streamline (shorten) sentences
  • Insert more precise or colorful vocabulary
  • Turn passive verbs into “actives”
  • Align subject-verb-object phrases
  • Untangle confusing sentences and paragraphs
  • Shorten run-on sentences
  • Insert questions & suggestions to help you clarify concepts
  • Correct in-text citations using style guides (APA, MLA, Turabian/Chicago, CSE)
  • Check quotes, name spelling or facts that seem incorrect
  • Check for consistencies in spellings and style throughout a paper

I also point out:

  • Where to add transitions
  • When to paraphrase rather than quote
  • Language bias (age, cultural, gender, racial, religious, etc.)

Copy Editing Rates:  $50 to $70 for 1,000 words, depending on writing quality, editing needs.
