WHAT LEVEL OF EDITING DOES YOUR DOCUMENT NEED?

Our academic proofreading services cover different extents of proofreading and editing. Read below so you can make the best choice!

Proofreading

For spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

What is proofreading?

A proofread is a simple check for grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors.

Do I need proofreading?

Choose proofreading if your document has already been edited or is ready for publication but needs a final check. If your document requires editing (such as correcting usage of vocabulary, sentence structure, and flow), please use the editing or developmental editing service.

Proofreading overview

When a document is created, it is difficult for writers to see their own mistakes. This is why it is essential to always hire a professional proofreader or editor to check your document.

The basic level of our academic proofreading services considers several areas of your writing. However, it is mainly centered on the fact that written English follows certain rules that may or may not be applicable to spoken English. Our editors check for correct punctuation, spelling, grammar, and other details including correct capitalization and spacing.

As a professional proofreading service, we are familiar with the most common mistakes that writers make. These mistakes often seem simple, but they can be detrimental to the writer’s intended meaning.

Going through a document with a fine-toothed comb may present itself as a burden for one who is not skilled to do so. We understand this! That is why Skylight Editorial has developed the most affordable proofreading service that you will find on the web. Our proofreading service has helped many worldwide.

Our expert proofreaders are trained in the art of proofreading and are masters of English. We can help you polish your document.

Editing

For editing of vocabulary, syntax, flow, and more!

What is editing?

When we edit, we check for issues with grammar, punctuation, spelling, vocabulary usage, sentence structure, flow, and style.

Do I need editing?

If your document has issues with phrasing, vocabulary usage, tone, style, and clarity, please use our editing service.

Editing overview

Editing is a more detailed process than basic proofreading. With proofreading, our editors only check for correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling. With editing, the consistency and logical structure of the text are checked, and suggestions are made or implemented for alternative words or sentences.

Even the best writers may need help conveying an idea. You may need help with consistency, tone, style, and logic in your work. The clearer an idea, the easier it is for your readers to follow.

Our editors will scrutinize your work to make or implement suggestions to improve the clarity of the document.

We will edit to remove cases of awkward and/or unnecessary phrasing, wordy sentences, and unclear ideas.

Skylight Editorial’s academic proofreading services has an editing and proofreading option, combining both levels of editing into one affordable package.

Developmental Editing

For documents in development.

What is developmental editing?

Developmental editing (formerly “Rewriting”) provides a more in-depth edit than proofreading and editing. The editor works with you to help you create the best version of your document. The stages are set out below:

  1. Submission: Submit the first draft of your document.
  2. Editing: We edit the document and return it to you with any questions or suggestions for improving the content.
  3. Revisions: You revise the document based on our suggestions or questions and return it to us. We then review the changes made. Each document can have up to three free revisions.

We do not add to your content, format your document, or check the correctness of your sources; we only revise your language.

Do I need developmental editing?

Please choose developmental editing if you need assistance as you develop your paper and support throughout the stages. Each document is offered three free revisions.

Developmental editing overview

Our developmental editing service is unique in that, unlike other developmental editing services, we provide all the services we offer in our proofreading and editing services with the added benefit of helping you develop your paper.

With developmental editing, we may:

  • Extensively edit and restructure sentences.
  • Move entire paragraphs and sentences to improve flow.
  • Identify gaps in your content.
  • Delete unnecessary phrasing that does not achieve your desired focus or tone.
  • Assist you with implementing reviewers’ suggestions.
