Copyediting Services

I provide onscreen copyediting using MS Word, correcting errors, querying the author about conflicting or unclear statements, and preparing a style sheet.  I am familiar with a number of styles (CMS, AMA, ACS) or can use your house style.

Services can include any or all of the following:

  • Correcting faulty spelling, grammar, and punctuation
  • Correcting incorrect usage
  • Ensuring consistency in spelling, hyphenation, numerals, fonts, and capitalization
  • Checking for proper sequencing (such as alphabetical order) in lists and other displayed material
  • Checking references to tables, figures and works cited
  • Flagging inappropriate figures of speech
  • In a multiauthor manuscript, enforcing consistent style and tone
  • Flagging ambiguous or incorrect statements 
  • Typecoding the manuscript

Journal Articles

I also edit articles for peer-reviewed journals. At one time this page contained a list of articles that I edited for Toxicological Sciences, the Journal of Heredity, and TheScientificWorldJOURNAL, but the list has become too long to list here. If you would like a list of copyedited journal articles, please contact me by e-mail.
