Copy Editing Service

Our copy editing service includes proofreading and the correction of both objective errors (grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc.) and “stylistic” or “rhetorical” errors in academic style, voice, clarity, diction, and sentence-level flow. However, it does not include a critical review of the document and constructive feedback that our line editing service offers. This service is ideal for individuals who have well-written papers that require minimal changes.

I recommend our copy editing services when a student’s ideas and argument are convincing, but they are having trouble expressing the ideas in a way that flows, yet maintains a scholarly tone.
