Emigsville, PA (PRWEB) January 09, 2012
Progressive Publishing Alternatives, a provider of content development and production services, today announced the launch of its new website at http://www.ppalternatives.com that provides more resources and educational tools about editorial services for publishing. These tools can be referenced by editors, authors, reviewers, and publishers to help them establish editorial and production strategies for their publications.
PPA’s new website includes the following editorial tools:
- Editing and Proofreading Marks – Available since the 1990s, this tool has been providing authors, reviewers, and editors with a quick reference guide on how to mark up their content with corrections and suggestions. The updated version of the Editing and Proofreading Marks guide allows them to clearly communicate their comments to publishers and compositors to create high quality publications.
- Recommended Editorial Resources – This tool provides a comprehensive list of resources that are 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.
- Get a Quote – This simple form allows publishers to submit projects to get fast estimates for editorial services, including copyediting, indexing, and design services. This tool provides publishers with quick access to design and editorial assistance when their workload exceeds their staff’s limits or when they need expertise that isn’t available internally.
“We provide these resources to help authors, reviewers, and publishers work more effectively,” said Suzanne Mescan, Vice President of Marketing for Vasont Systems. “Our website and our services are dedicated to helping everyone involved in the publishing process to produce publications that are accurate and error-free.”
