Now that you have a general idea of what UPRC can assist you with, we invite you to get  acquainted with the different levels of editing and a general range of compensation.
Level One:
In general, PROOFREADING involves the identification and correction of typographical errors,  punctuation errors, misspellings, and formatting inconsistencies.  It may also mean comparing two documents for uniformity.


COPY and LINE EDITING covers the same areas, but may include grammar, word usage, capitalization, word breaks, tone, and format.


Level Two:
DEVELOPMENTAL / SUBSTANTIVE EDITING seeks to achieve clarity of subject, logic, and consistency.  Confusing and awkward writing may be reworked.  Sentences are analyzed for structure/syntax. Long sentences may be clarified and/r simplified.
Proofreading, copyediting,  and substantive editing often occur simultaneously. 

Level Three:
PRE PRESS/ PRE FLIGHT –When required, style revisions will be suggested or implemented (e.g., page numbers, margins, headings, spacing, indentations/paragraphs, quotes, references, citations, footnotes, endnotes, addition of ISBN and barcode). Reserved for clients who desire to have UPRC  to be the publishers. The submitted materials will be made ready to be published. Client is still responsible for financial arrangements with the selected book printer.
