H-B Consulting
Manuscript Editing


 I provide all levels of manuscript editing:

  • intensive developmental editing;
  • light, moderate, or comprehensive editing of text;
  • final proofreading of manuscripts before submission; and
  • guiding textual revisions based on reviewers' comments.

          Manuscripts, especially those submitted to scholarly journals, must be meticulously accurate and grammatically correct. Editorial precision is not easy, even for native speakers of English; it is much harder for authors whose native language is not English. Most journals require that texts submitted must be in well-edited form, and will return texts that need editing or will refer authors to an editing service for an added fee. A well-written manuscript is likely to be more competitive than one with similar content that is not as well written.
