Proofreading is the most basic form of editing. This is usually the final step that is done before publication. This service doesn’t include the things that copy editing and developmental editing will include.
Proofreading is a crucial part of the writing process. I definitely recommend having this done after you have had either a copy edit and/or developmental edit done. When proofreading I go through and check for any kinds of typos and errors plus spelling and grammar issues.
Turnaround time is usually 7-10 days.
I’ll also be checking for inconsistencies in style and formatting such as with bullet points, heading sizes, numbers and spacing.
