This is the final polish on a manuscript. It involves checking spelling, punctuation and presentation as well as consistency with a given ‘house style’ to suit your intended market. In addition to the corrected manuscript you will receive a style sheet that has been compiled during the editing process. (If the house style isn’t known, your manuscript will be edited to the Oxford Style Manual standard.)
