This is where I will check the fine details such as your spelling, punctuation and grammar, ensuring the correct use of words, and the consistency of your argument or storyline. You may have inadvertently deviated from the expected course, or become overwhelmed by the amount of information. Inconsistency in spelling will also be caught and picked up in sentence-level editing so you, the author, can be alerted and be able to promptly correct it in the next draft. I have now completed the first of the copyediting SfEP courses.
This is the final stage of the editing process but certainly no less important than the other stages. This service is suitable only if the other levels have already been applied and other issues have been addressed and resolved. It’s the final spit and polish. Any remaining typing, spelling and formatting problems will be highlighted and I will examine how your text presents itself in both hard, and electronic formats. This is the final opportunity to catch any errors before your work is presented for publishing. I am familiar with BSI correction markup and have completed the first of two SfEP proofreading courses.
