The edit letter addresses overall issues in the manuscript and compiles all of these issues into a single letter for the author. An edit letter isn't a line by line edit like developmental or copy edits—instead it focuses on big picture issues. Think of it like the SparkNotes version of editing! Edit letters are a fantastic place to start before diving into a full developmental edit and gives you the tools to edit on your own before taking the next step towards developmental or copy edits.
What our edit letter covers:
