  • micro-editing (grammar, punctuation, syntax (the way words are arranged in sentence), composition, spelling);
  • macro-editing (formatting, rearranging text and paragraphs if required, reducing word count (affects price), adding transition statements, adding new text if necessary to bring clarity and ensure the argument is strong and coherent) (in consultation); and,
  • research conventions (in consultation), for example:
    • introduction and literature review (plus any theory) (i.e., argument set-up and justification for the study or paper)
    • are methods adequately and succinctly reported
    • does discussion tie back to literature review and/or theory
    • does discussion compass key results and/or findings
    • do conclusions and recommendations stem from the paper
    • check all referencing (in paper and in list) and prepare in your desired format (e.g., APA, Chicago, Vancouver).
