What's the difference between
copy editing and proofreading?

If you request copy editing, we will check for grammar, spelling, usage and punctuation, making sure your course conforms to a specified style guide such as AP Style or the Chicago Manual of Style, and if needed, perform or suggest rewrites to improve readability and correct any errors of fact.

Our proofreading services focus on scanning for minor formatting and typographical errors, including consistency of headings, tables and figures, without making or suggesting substantive changes to your course.
