Substantive editing services
Substantive editing, also referred to as content editing or line editing, involves more significant changes to the manuscript. That is, it focuses on higher-levels edits around content, organization, and tone. Substantive editors are generally less concerned with grammar and punctuation issues than copyeditors. However, they still correct fundamental language errors and rephrase awkward or confusing passages. They look at the big picture and aim to support the author in delivering clear and concise prose to the intended audience.
