Manuscript Assessments

Do you need to the overall structure of the manuscript or document assessed? I can offer you an appraisal in the form of a report highlighting areas of concern or inconsistency.

The appraisal will not alter or edit your document but report on areas where the document could be improved or expanded, and whether it meets its intended objectives.

It is the start of the editing process allowing both the author and editor to discuss and review the recommendations found in the appraisal before implementing them in the structural edit.
