This service involves a review for proper punctuation according to the appropriate style, check of all citations for proper use and formatting, identification of any reprint permission issues, and list of any deviations from the publisher's or institution's requirements for front matter, font size, and other formatting issues. Technical review includes the table of contents, heading styles, and formatting of tables, if any.
Most of our technical review clients come from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), but we have also supported students from Stanford, European Graduate School, and UC Davis, among others.
Our staff is proficient with a number of styles:
- American Psychological Association (APA)
- American Anthropological Association (AAA)
- Modern Language Association (MLA)
- Chicago Manual of Style (CMS)
- Harvard Business Review (HBR)
We are also very comfortable applying the style guidelines and requests of a particular publisher, journal, or institution as needed.
