A content review serves to identify problems that the author should address before their manuscript is given to an editor. Issues can include incomplete plot points, disjointed flow, and consistency or continuity problems. Although grammar, spelling, and punctuation problems may be noted, the content review focuses more on a comprehensive read-through of the manuscript for readability.
How should I format my manuscript for a Content Review before submitting it?
The manuscript can be either a Word document or a PDF.
Manuscripts should be submitted in this format:
- Font: 12-point Courier
- Margins: 1” all around
- Spacing: double
- Page numbers: bottom of page, centered
- If PDF, single pages [not spread]
