Structural/Developmental Editing

Each document is unique when it comes to structural or developmental editing; the process can be very different from one project to another and commonly involves some of the tasks below. I’ll work with you to determine the approach that will create the best document for your message and your audience.

  • developing a document outline from concept and notes
  • restructuring an outline or a document for logical order, flow, balance, and coherence
  • creating a template and layout for a modular document, based on information mapping and document design principles
  • combining material from different sources
  • integrating new material for revised or re-purposed text
  • developing graphics and tables
  • creating bibliographies, references, and notes
  • flagging quoted material that needs permission from its copyright holder
  • adapting print material for the Web and vice versa
