Electronic Tracked Changes

Electronic tracked changes is the option you would choose for your document copy edit/proofread if you wish to decide whether to accept or reject the suggested changes. The document will be reviewed in Microsoft Word® with the tracked changes function switched on. When you receive your checked document, all suggested changes will be highlighted by a different coloured font, a margin line and a summary box of the change. You can then review your document and choose to accept/reject a suggestion by the click of your mouse.

Similarly, any structural or formatting suggestions will be highlighted, giving you full control of the appearance of your end product. Where the editor has other comments or suggestions, a comment will be inserted at the relevant point in the text for you to consider. A comment will be inserted in a balloon in the margin of the document.
