Apart from the standard copyediting services, we also offer high-quality editorial services such as substantive editing to our esteemed clients.
Intellzi’s approach to the task of substantive editing consists of a methodical evaluation and critical analysis of the whole manuscript. Our substantive editors help the author polish the manuscript that earned them the publishing contract.
Essentially, our substantive editors help the author to tighten a manuscript’s scope, thus helping the author focus on what is apt and what is not by either revising or recommending revisions of, or deleting or advising removal of, passages or even the entire chapters, if necessary. Our substantive editors recommend reordering of paragraphs or chapters in nonfictional work, or in the case of fictional work adding of scenes or dropping of subplots, and raise pertinent questions and makes critical comments that help clarify the author’s objective or express the author’s message. This is because substantive editing is basically analysis-based, whether at the word, sentence, paragraph, or the document level. Therefore, decisions require judgment, not just the application of rules. Hence, it is imperative that it should be negotiable with the author. Thus, INTELLIZI’s substantive editors are virtually the author’s collaborator as well as the greatest ally. This is primarily because of the fact that our substantive editors, working in tandem with the author, always ensures that fictional works support character motivation and nonfictional works conveys authority.
As Intellzi’s expert substantive editors specialize in examining the overall structure and help authors fill in blanks and avoid repetitions and ensure whether the manuscript is well organized, appropriate in tone, style, and format, clear and articulate, and consistent in its approach, your manuscript is eventually rendered as aptly suitable for your readerships. This approach of ours is applicable not only for all nonfiction books, journal or magazine articles, business proposals, marketing materials, white papers, software manuals but also for other documents.
