The Head Bookworm has edited many manuscripts for journal publication.

Editing includes the following:

  • Confirming document follows the AMA Manual of Style and journal style
  • Correcting grammar, spelling, punctuation, and formatting
  • Assisting writers with clarity, brevity, syntax, diction, and presentation of ideas
  • Ensuring the manuscript meets journal style and specifications
  • Submitting the manuscript to the journal for the client and reviewing and correcting proofs as needed
