In case you are 100% confident that your document features an adequate English proficiency and you don’t need to perform an English language verification, you may want to have your academic paper copy edited as an initial measure. Copy editing mainly involves the processes of editing and proofreading for syntactic mistakes. Regardless of the length of the paper that you want to publish, you should have it revised by an expert copy editor. This way, you’ll make sure your document is free of any common mistakes.
Seeing as you’re very keen on the topic of your academic paper, your enthusiasm may have overwhelmed you, and you may have committed errors such as misusing or misspelling words. Another frequent error passionate authors make is that of having the impression that they notice terms or phrases that are in fact absent! For example, such mistakes as writing “begin” instead of “being” or “the” instead of “they” are frequently overlooked because the author visualizes what they meant to write instead of what they in fact wrote.
Here’s what copy editing services entail:
- Editing sentence structure and style
- Verifying the accuracy of punctuation marks (such as citation marks or commas)
- Verifying for orthography mistakes
- Verifying for typing errors or misused/misspelled terms
- Comprehensive grammatical verification (word utilization, phrase construction, clauses, etc.)
