Our philosophy of content editing is – in a word – holistic. We believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Simply put, our view is that the contents of every publication deserve to be presented in a cohesive, readily understandable manner, without needless surplusage or overlap.
We are experts at sifting through the subject matter in raw manuscripts. When editing the content of a manuscript, our attorney-editors will reorganize and rewrite the text, as necessary, to turn the manuscript into an easy to follow, polished whole – ready for publication. If requested, we will also suggest new ideas and better approaches to the subject matter, in order to assist you in making your publications outshine your competitors' publications.
In addition to our proofreading services, discussed below, our copyediting services include practical advice for fixing ambiguous references, awkward transitions, and wordiness, in order to improve clarity and the flow of ideas. And, of course, we thoroughly check legal citations for inconsistencies with the applicable style guidelines – in-house as well as Bluebook style guidelines. Any inconsistencies will be corrected to conform to your style preferences.
Our proofreading services include a thorough examination of the manuscript for mistakes in grammar, punctuation, spelling, and capitalization, which we correct in conformance with the standard rules of proper English. In addition, we correct basic formatting inconsistencies and typographical errors.
