Progressive Publishing Alternatives (PPA), part of The Magnus Group, Inc., launched its new website at www.ppalternatives.com and included more resources and educational tools about editorial services for publishing. These tools can be referenced by editors, authors, reviewers, and publishers to help establish editorial and production strategies.
The Editing and Proofreading Marks tool provides users with a reference guide on how to mark up their content with corrections and suggestions. With the updated version, users can more clearly communicate their comments to publishers and compositors.
The Recommended Editorial Resources tool offers a list of resources that have been deemed valuable for establishing editorial styles and strategies. Included in the recommendations are popular editorial style guides, writing resources, and electronic editing and mark-up tips.
The Get a Quote form allows publishers to submit projects to more quickly receive estimates for editorial services, including copyediting, indexing, and design services. Users will also have access to design and editorial assistance.
