COPY EDITING

We will check the raw text. Ensuring it is correct, in terms of spelling and grammar punctuation, style and usage and is easy to read so that readers can understand your ideas. Checking for any possible legal problems or embarrassing errors of fact.Supply ‘notes’ to discuss with the author e.g.Structure and Content – Is anything missing or redundant? Is the order logical? Do headings and chapters break up text and make it more readable: are there enough of them? Chapter navigation for Kindle/eBook format. Are footnotes required? Could ‘supporting material’ go into an appendix? Does the piece require acknowledgements? Should there be a bibliography, a glossary or an index?Text Suitability – Has the language been pitched at the right level for the intended audience? Do any terms or abbreviations need explanation?

Length – Is the work too long/short? What, approximate, number of words are required per page in the finished book. How many pages will this make the finished book?  Are there Illustrations? Where will these appear? Overall look of the title page, table of contents, etc.

Sentence and paragraph length – This is dependent on the readership, the type of copy and how the copy is going to be read. ‘Typesetting’, especially for eReaders e.g. Kindle, will inevitablychange line length. Default settings and consideration of page appearance for paperback is however important.

Consistency – A list of decisions about alternative spellings and hyphenation has to be kept. Illustrations and tables should agree with the text and captions, as should chapter headings and running heads with the table of contents.

Illustrations and tables – This would not be advisable for eBook in most circumstance. Illustrations should support the text and have appropriate captions. Text referring to tables should comment on the data, not simply repeat it. The location of each illustration and table should be roughly indicated in the manuscript (to guide the typesetter when laying out the pages). The copy-editor will also need to ensure that all artwork is suitable for printing or (if appropriate) for reproduction on the web.

Style –use of metaphor, simile, or other device. Word usage e.g is it possible to cut a word out, appropriateness of the passive/active voice. Use of foreign phrases, a scientific words or a jargon. The overuse of exclamation marks and emphasis, in italic, bold or capitals. Lengthy sentences with little punctuation. Length of paragraphs. Unnecessary changes between the first and the third person.

Accuracy – All spellings of names of people and things should be checked. The extent to which facts, dates, quotations, etc. are to be checked will be agreed with the author.

Legal issues – Any identifiable instances of the breaches of copyright, libel, obscenity, or incitement to racial hatred should be flagged up during copy-editing, even though responsibility for them remains with the author.

Technical matters – discussing with the author various issues regarding design, typesetting, conversions etc.

Copy Editing does not include Rewriting and restructuring text in depth – often known as developmental or substantive editing, ghost writing, research (beyond basic fact-checking) seeking permission to use copyright material.
