As part of copy-editing, we render your work consistent with regard to formatting and referencing style. To this end, we are conversant with the dominant citation styles for business, the sciences, medicine, humanities, and law (including APA, Chicago, Harvard, ICMJE, MLA, and OSCOLA). Furthermore, we readily familiarise ourselves with the peculiarities required by different university faculties for the sake of Ph.D. and D.Phil submission. Just let us know your referencing style and spelling conventions (e.g., American or British English) and we can begin transforming your manuscript into clear and compelling prose.
All changes to your work are logged through Microsoft Word’s Track Changes facility. This enables you to keep tabs on our interventions, giving you autonomy over the final draft of your work. All copy-edits are finished by one of our founders, who provides the seal of approval to all work, thereby guaranteeing client satisfaction.
