Copyediting is usually done on the final word-processing draft of a document, before pages are formatted for print or the Web.

Basic copyediting:

  • editing for grammar, spelling, consistency, accuracy, completeness, and adherence to a style guide
  • checking spelling of names and internal consistency of facts
  • ensuring graphics and tables are consistent with text and labelled and numbered correctly

+ line editing (stylistic editing):

  • editing for concise, clear, bias-free text
  • creating transitions for flow and coherence between paragraphs and sentences
  • ensuring variety in sentence construction while maintaining consistency of voice and tone
  • checking that vocabulary and sentence length and complexity are appropriate for the required reading level
