Developmental editing

Developmental editing helps shape the work, from finding issues with the plot direction to the actual organization of chapters and sections. The editor helps bring a manuscript closer to its final, publishable structure. This type of editing can be an intensive process and may challenge the author to reassess their writing. After developmental editing, a project is ready for the next stage in the writing process, which is copyediting.  At CQ, coaching is often paired with a developmental editing package.

Copyediting

Copyediting involves working closely with the actual language of the text. The editor may point out general errors with the writing, such as inconsistency in verb tenses,and make suggestions regarding word choice and grammar. After a thorough copyedit, the manuscript is ready to move on to the proofreading stage.

Content editing

At CQ, we define content editing as a combination of developmental editing and copyediting. We look for consistency and coherency at the level of the whole, and we pay attention to grammar, syntax, diction, and dialogue throughout.

Proofreading/line editing 

Proofreading is generally considered to be the final step in the editing process. Proofreaders focus on the formatting of the work and check for technical and stylistic consistency. Like a copyeditor, they will point out and correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation issues within the work. However, they are less concerned with errors in the content of the work, such as word choice and fact checking, as it is presumed these issues were corrected in the copyediting stage.
