THE EDITING PROCESS
The editing process is pretty simple. You submit your manuscript in a Word document. The editor does his editing on the computer.
The editor makes no actual changes to your document. You are the author, and an editor only makes recommendations. It is up to you to accept or reject them.
All recommendations are typed into manuscript with accompanied discussions into the margins. These changes are in a different color while the original text is maintained. You, as the author, simply accepts or rejects each recommended change as you deem fit.
All editing is done using The Chicago Manual of Style as the base reference.
