Levels of Service


LIGHT TEXT EDITING: 
Light editing corrects spelling errors and typos, grammar mistakes, punctuation, and word choice and usage; and checks for consistency of stylistic elements like pronoun point of view, verb tense, and level of formality. 

MEDIUM TEXT EDITING: 
Medium editing corrects spelling errors and typos, grammar mistakes, punctuation, word choice and usage; and checks for consistency of stylistic elements like pronoun point of view, verb tense, and level of formality. This level of editing includes rephrasing or rewriting of awkward or unclear sentences, replacement of jargon, insertion of transitional words and phrases, and paring down of sentences for concision. 

HEAVY TEXT EDITING: 
Heavy editing (also known as substantive editing) corrects spelling errors and typos, grammar mistakes, punctuation, word choice and usage; checks for consistency of stylistic elements like pronoun point of view, verb tense, and level of formality; and rephrases awkward or unclear sentences, replaces jargon, inserts transitions, and pares down sentences for concision. This level also includes reorganization of text and restructuring of paragraphs and sections to achieve logical coherence, and pays attention to the balance of ethos, pathos, and logos. This editing will usually be accompanied by suggestions for rhetorical, stylistic, and logical strengthening. 

FORMATTING: 
Formatting amends the capitalization, alphabetization, punctuation, italicization, abbreviation, indentation, and layout of research citations/footnotes, tables, figures, and headings in the document, so they conform to the assigned style sheet or journal submission guidelines. If needed, it will also adjust margins, type fonts, and running heads, and lay out front matter such as Table of Contents, List of Tables, and so forth. Formatting is performed separately from editing.
