What is copy editing and why do I need a copy editor?
Copy editing means taking a manuscript and examining each line for mistakes in grammar, punctuation, and spelling. A copy editor will also standardize the style and documentation while helping improve clarity and flow. Any changes made should preserve the voice and meaning of the author without introducing errors.
If you are an author seeking to publish, a copy editor offers your manuscript the chance to be scrutinized under a pair of fresh eyes. Copy editors offer experience and expertise reviewing for grammatical and stylistic inconsistencies. They will not change the science, meaning, or content of a document. Rather, they will 'clean up' the document allowing potential publishers or consumers to read without hindrance.
You owe it to your efforts in research, or to your product, to present a clear and shining work that can be easily understood by the desired audience. Partnering with a qualified copy editor can bring that final bit of polish to your work.
