Proofreading and Copy Editing

What is Proof Reading and Copy Editing?

Proof Reading: Proof reading is the  final quality check of a document. I will identify errors in spellings, punctuation and grammar. I will also identify any inconsistencies on your layout, fonts and references.

Copy Editing: I will correct spelling, punctuation and grammar, but also look at style and language usage. I will break up any overly long sentences and highlight any areas that do not make sense, have a weak argument or are factually dubious. Finally, I look for overuse of punctuation and too much repetition of words or phrases.

I am familiar with most commonly used referencing systems including: Harvard, MHRA, MLA and Chicago.
