Proofreading

z"The Siege"

Before your book goes to the printer, we highly recommend this final quality check.

There are two proofreading options:

Option #1: Scan the final pages

We will verify that all data are included.

Consistent formatting of headings and text will be checked.

Placement of figures and tables in relation to text will be analyzed.

Page numbers in the Table of Contents, indexes, and cross-reference will be spot-checked.

We will check the overall appearance of the pages.

Option #2: Reread the manuscript

We will reread the whole manuscript and the cover text.

This service encompasses all of the tasks included in Option #1 as well as checking for egregious errors (e.g., typographical errors, wrong words, bad line breaks, and design inconsistencies).

    Tasks not included in proofreading

    Please read the different tasks included in our copyediting and formatting services. If you choose to use our full proofreading services (Option #2), these tasks will not be included:

    • Rewriting

    • Changing the tone of your voice

    • Changing punctuation if it is consistent with your writing style

    • Deleting extra spaces before and between words and/or sentences

    • Redefining acronynms if not done correctly

    • Conforming hyphens and dashes, including consistency of spaces around them

    • Conforming ellipses, including consistency of spaces around them

    Additional rounds of proofreading

    We will submit an estimate for additional rounds of proofreading, if required. This process will continue until you are ready to move forward.
