Most projects do not fall neatly into a single category. Fortunately, FooteNotes offers a range of services to fit your needs and budget. Here are a few of our specialties:

Developmental / Project Editing
Coordinating and editing a project from proposal or rough manuscript to final manuscript, incorporating input from authors, consultants, and reviewers.

Structural Editing
Clarifying and/or reorganizing a manuscript for content and structure.

Stylistic Editing
Clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, smoothing language, and other non-mechanical line-by-line editing.

Creating a new manuscript or parts of a manuscript on the basis of content and research supplied by an author. May include some research and writing of original material.

Copy Editing
Editing for grammar, spelling, punctuation, and other mechanics of style.

Reading proofs of edited manuscript. Galley proofing may include incorporating and/or exercising discretion on author's alterations; flagging locations of art and page references; verifying computer codes. Page proofing may include checking adherence to mock-up (rough paste-up), accuracy of running heads, folios, and changes made to type in mock-up, checking page breaks and location of art, and inserting page numbers to table of contents and cross-references if necessary.
