  25.         <p>The tasks that an editor performs can be grouped broadly into three levels: substantive editing, copyediting
  26.             and
  27.             proofreading. A comprehensive edit involves all three levels of edit.

  86.                         and in the proper order,
  87.                         all amendments have been inserted, the house or other set style has been followed, and all

  98.         <p>All of these levels of edit are essential in producing a high-quality publication, whether on paper or
  99.             onscreen. They
  100.             are performed at different times in the publication process and are not necessarily performed only once. The
  101.             three
  102.             levels usually overlap to some degree; an editor hired to do a copyedit is quite likely to also perform some

  110.         <p class="lead">Whether editing another writer’s work or your own, a substantive edit starts in a familiar
  111.             place: who is your audience
  112.             and what are your goals? If editing your own work, revisit the audience and goal analysis you developed at
  113.             the beginning
  114.             of your writing process. If you are writing someone else’s work, ask to see their analysis or have a brief
  115.             conversation
  116.             about it before you even begin to look at what they’ve done. Ensure you’ve answered these questions before
  117.             moving to the
  118.             next steps:
  119.         </p>
  120.         <ul>

  134.         <p class="lead mb-4 mt-4">Now that you have familiarized yourself with the audience and goals of the document,
  135.             you
  136.             can
  137.             begin the edit, focusing on
  138.             three major components: structural review, language and style editing, and clarity of presentation.

  156.                         if anything needs to be added or rewritten, if the structure makes sense, if the document has a
  157.                         logical flow, and if it
  158.                         can be easily navigated. If a document outline was developed before the document was written, it
  159.                         will be helpful to
  160.                         review it as well. Remember, your job as an editor isn’t to do the rewriting, but rather to act
  161.                         as a pilot-audience,
  162.                         pointing out areas that need to be improved.

  180.                         taken during a substantive edit to
  181.                         ensure the document has a clear, unified voice. You also need to ensure the voice is effective
  182.                         and appropriate for the
  183.                         audience. Make note of jargon and technical terms.

  203.                         and the headings clearly
  204.                         describe the contents of the section, that images and tables are well-placed, well-designed,
