Structural editing

Structural editing involves looking at the project in its entirety to develop:

  • opportunities – content that adds value
  • possibilities – strategies for enhancing learning outcomes
  • suitability – solutions for achieving the project’s objectives.

We work in consultation with you to make important analytical judgments on:

  • effective delivery of ideas
  • clarity of mathematical concepts
  • appropriate tone and language
  • integration of curriculum standards and learning criteria
  • appropriate language level for the intended audience.

Our specialist copyeditors check mathematics content for conceptual and logical errors, as well as checking grammar, readability and consistency.

They review to:

  • ensure clarity, understanding, sense and fluency
  • manage cultural sensitivities
  • avoid gender bias or discriminatory language
  • ensure the use of inclusive language.

They also prepare manuscripts by:

  • formatting mathematical expressions
  • ensuring conformity with house style
  • creating an editorial style sheet
  • applying paragraph and character styles
  • creating and/or reviewing artwork briefs.


Proofreading plays an important role in ensuring the integrity of mathematics content. Our proofreading services include checking:

  • spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • design, layout and style
  • formatting
  • document structure
  • hyperlinks and URLs
  • linked components, such as tables of contents, indexes, glossaries and references.


Vital for quality and accuracy, our expert answer-checking services:

  • check steps in worked examples to ensure they are correct and logical
  • check answers to questions and remove any ambiguity
  • provide the correct solution or alternative answers where necessary.
