Copy Editing & Writing

Incorrect diction and linguistic errors may damage the impression of a writer, resulting in disinterest on the part of the reader. Therefore, every literal composition requires editing. For a document to be acceptable for publication, it must follow an organized layout and must be error free.

Frequently asked questions:

  • In which languages do you work?
    English. Contact us about other languages.
  • Why is it important to get the document edited before publication?
    At times, the author himself may not consider the minor, or sometimes even the major language inconsistencies, which may leave the reader uninterested in reading the document. Even a good research may not come out well to the reader if it is not appropriately presented. Therefore, it is essential that even a good document gets assessed by a native speaker to identify and eliminate any sort of grammatical, typographical etc. errors.
  • Do you specialize in a particular field of editing or do you cater to all genres?
    Our editing spans over varied fields including medicine, science and technology, arts and commerce, humanities, engineering, computer science etc.
  • What if the editing services provided by you do not grant me the desired level of satisfaction? Will I still be liable to pay the fees?
    I.T.S offers professional editing services to meet their clients' satisfaction. In case on one attempt the document does not meet your level of satisfaction, it will go through another round of editing for the same charges paid only once.
  • Do you guarantee success?
    Writing, like any creative human activity, is an uncertain and often difficult process. If you engage our services, we will make all possible efforts to grant clarity to the document. However, rationality of contents is as important as correctness of contents for a piece of writing to be acceptable by peers. Therefore, I.T.S Consultants cannot guarantee acceptance of edited documents by journals. Rather, we undertake to remove the threat of rejection due to the following:
    1. In the case of editing of English, deficiencies of English grammar and style.
    2. In the case of assessment of logic and flow of argument, deficiencies in logical structure. This makes the acceptance of your paper dependent solely on the academic quality of its content. Final responsibility for documents rests with authors.
  • Will you write my term paper or dissertation for me?
    No. We are well aware of the existence of Web sites which offer to write essays for students and that is not what we do. While our work inevitably involves some proofreading, we are acutely aware of the dangers of sliding into a position of co-authorship with the client.
  • Would the fee be paid at the time of submission of the document for editing or after the document has been finally edited?
    The invoice will be sent as soon as the document is received and the payment will be due accordingly.
  • What responsibility does I.T.S owe in terms of paper handling or copyright
    While I.T.S takes all reasonable care with the conversion of documents, final responsibility for the meaning and use of the document remains solely with the client. I.T.S and its consultants disclaim liability for any loss, damage or injury resulting from the use of edited material.
