The job entails the editing of a 420 page ebook to ready for ebook and print publication:
. checking all citations to referenced materials are present and correct (This is my main concern. I want to be completely assured that if there is anything in the ebook copied and pasted from the internet then this is identified and the source is appropriately referenced. The ebook had several contributors. 'Plagiarism' is definitely a word I never want to hear!) This aspect of the project is 70% of the job.
. smoothing and improving the language/ expression, and summarising some sections that are overlong. This aspect of the project is 27% of the job.
. adding 20 or so new pages, and some changed pages, I will supply
. adding to the Index to reflect any new material added
. arranging for an ISBN
The ebook is in Microsoft Word, converted to a pdf for publication.
