Copy editing & Indexing

The process of correcting errors in a text and making it conform to an editorial style (also called house style), which includes spelling, capitalization, and punctuation is known as copy-editing. A stage of the writing process in which a writer or editor strives to improve a draft (and sometimes prepare it for publication) by correcting errors and by making words and sentences clearer, more precise, and more effective.

This is the industry-accepted interpretation of copy editing. Copy editing focuses on the five Cs of writing:

  • Clear
  • Correct
  • Concise
  • Complete
  • Consistent

We will adjust sentence and paragraph structure, eliminate redundant words, replace repetitive words with synonyms, and substitute weak words, phrases, and sentences with alternatives that deliver more impact or are more relevant to your subject matter. Experienced editors will always make sure your original tone remains intact. Expect noticeable change to your original paper.

Our professional should always use a tracking system such as Microsoft Word’s Track Changes feature. This allows you to easily see, accept, and reject changes to your paper on an edit-by-edit basis.

The process of creating an index is called indexing, and a person who does it is called an indexer. There are many types of indexes, from cumulative indexes for journals to computer database indexes.

Definition of ‘Indexing’:The adjustment of the weights of assets in an investment portfolio so that its performance matches that of an index.

Linking movements of rates to the performance of an index. Indexing is a passive investment strategy. An investor can achieve the same risk and return of an index by investing in an index fund.
