Developmental editing


Developmental editing involves the significant structuring or restructuring of a manuscript.


When undertaking this type of editing, I will:

  • check that necessary sections or pieces of information are not missing. If any are missing, I will bring them to your attention so that they can be incorporated into the text;
  • rearrange the text to improve its logical flow;
  • move entire paragraphs and sentences to improve the textual flow;
  • ensure a consistent structure throughout by changing, adding or deleting headings;
  • shorten the text to a specified word limit, should you require it;
  • rewrite unclear and/or wordy text;
  • suggest areas of the text that you should work on further;
  • rewrite and restructure the text to fit the format;
  • verify that formatting and style elements are being used properly throughout your manuscript.
