CSU libraries are unable to provide copyediting support for online journals. Many smaller-scale presses and individual open access journals rely on volunteers to do light copyediting or hire freelance editors to perform this work.

For detailed instructions on copyediting in OJS, see the PKP documentation.

To learn about the practices of copyediting, proofreading, and substantive editing, see this article.

It is also advisable to create a style guide for your journal to achieve consistency in style, grammar, and presentation, among other concerns. For examples of style guides, see The BMJ and The Journal of Politics.
