This is the most intensive form of editing.
The document is evaluated as a whole and problems of structure, organization, coherence, and logical consistency are identified and suggestions made for correction.
Suggestions may involve the removal or addition of sentences, rewriting of paragraphs to condense or expand as required. Moving blocks of text from one section to another may be suggested.
Substantive editing includes one revision at no additional charge.
Turnaround time must be negotiated.
Cost: $3.00 per 1000 words
