Copy editing

Normally the first editing of a manuscript, copy editing ensures that the text is free of all defects and that it matches the appropriate tone and style, I copy edit in Microsoft Word using the “track edits” mode so the originating editor can review all changes. Not every task described below is performed every time. Tasks marked "Query" are flagged for the originating editor.

  • Correct spelling, grammar and style errors
  • Edit or rewrite text to improve clarity and tone of voice
  • Provide alternative heads, decks and pull-quotes
  • Check for errors in facts, dates, names and titles, and referrals
  • Review for potential legal issues or requirements
  • Query issues that cannot be resolved
