Technical editors for YOUR required style guide
The professional editors at First Editing are experienced and familiar with all the major style guides: APA, MLA, Chicago, Turabian, Harvard, etc. While some basics are similar in each, there are also slight differences: for example, in APA style, a parenthetical citation would look thusly: (Smith, 2009). In Harvard style the same citation would be: (Smith 2009).
Professional editors properly arrange your reference material. We ensure direct quotes appear with proper citations and all sources in the text are properly written and included in your reference section. (Note: we will NOT write your paper.) Please include your complete instructions, chosen style guide, and writing concerns when submitting your document for editing.
Do you need professional feedback?
Our editors also serve as commentators on your work, pointing out areas that seem weak or especially strong. They indicate where citations are missing or needed.
Technical editors ask questions where your answers help clarify a confusing passage. It is better to have an editor make these types of comments than your committee!
Do you need formatting?
A final “plus” of technical editing is that it includes a degree of formatting. Our academic editors won’t place your charts and diagrams or generate your reference list. However, they will make sure your margins are correct, your references are formatted as they should be, your line spacing is consistent, and your headers and footers are placed properly.
