Hurix provides efficient copy editing services, a core process in the Editorial Services, to its reputed clients. Copy editing includes analysis of the input, creation of style sheets, amendment of styles, language editing, editorial proofreading, and indexing the content before being sent for the next process. Copy editing is the process of ensuring a content is correct in terms of syntax and fact, consistent with the flow of the content and style, and complete with respect to the context.
Pre-editing involves cleaning the submitted raw manuscript for unwanted spaces and breaks, followed by applying tags to the manuscript. We set the references as per in-house publisher style, with regard to punctuation and placement of different elements that include
We also ensure that all the citations are cross-linked with the references/tables/figures, and any unlisted and uncited references are identified with appropriate queries raised to the authors
Style editing involves checking the piece of work for consistency of elements such as abbreviations and acronyms, casing of titles, head levels, captions, spelling, hyphenation, punctuation, quotations, numerals and units, emphasis significance like bold and italics, word preferences based on publisher, typos/syntax, lists, extracts, equations, to name a few.
For quick and correct output, pre-editing and style editing tasks are carried out using our AI tool.
Language editing involves editing the content for subject–verb agreement, identifying any inconsistent parts of the content as well as any variances and correcting them without infringing on the author’s meaning, and vague sentences/phrases are fixed by either rewriting the content or heavily editing it. We offer light editing, medium editing and heavy editing based on the publisher’s requirement.
To go with the pace of industry standards, Hurix renders AI support in core tasks for fast-track and efficient services. For effective editing output and to give time for the editors to concentrate on language editing, we have developed automation in certain tasks using Hued – our AI tool.
Hued is a custom-designed AI tool primarily developed to ease copy editing processes and to enable a copy editor to focus more on the language front. It is an XML-first workflow automated tool that converts edited manuscripts into JATS/NLM and any client-specific DTD. Pre-editing and style-related points are validated using the Hued tool.
We offer Manuscript Preparation (Prep) service for books. Proper preparation of the book leads to a faster and efficient final formatted output. We ensure that before going into production, the manuscript preparer checks whether all the contents of the book are available, gives proper folder structure and follows standard naming convention, provides proper call-outs for artworks and other elements of a book, checks for the table of contents and aligns them with the input chapters, and prepares book info sheet based on the data provided, to be transferred to production process.
Editorial proofreading (EPR) is done to detect and correct production errors of text/art and ensure the document is accurate in all copyediting, proofreading, and typesetting aspects. Specifically, EPR involves checking for spelling errors , mis-numbering, wrong labels, maintaining style, collation of author corrections, and verifying whether author corrections are set as per style and updated accordingly.
We have handpicked our editorial proofreaders who have extensive experience in proofreading the typeset pages, eliminating all errors before the book goes to print. They can handle a wide range of publishers and have a keen eye when it comes to spotting nuance details.
An index is essentially a roadmap to the book. A traditional back-of-the-book index includes names of people, places, events, and concepts selected by the indexer as being relevant and of interest to a possible reader of the book.
Indexing involves author indexing, subject indexing, any other specific additional indexing for books, and index extraction from tagged keywords. A well-made index can help quickly navigate the reader to the information that a reader is looking for. We have experienced professionals in preparing indexes for STM and humanities books for various educational publishers.
