Our copyeditors are proficient in a variety of style guides, including MLA, APA (American Psychological Association), CMoS (Chicago Manual of Style), AMA (American Medical Association), etc.

XML Coding

We implement XML coding as per journal DTD specification to deliver the output XML for page composition.

First Page Proof Composition

Our experts code the manuscript to enable the typesetting process. Further, the data is paginated, proof read, cross-checked and incorporated.

Page Proof Revision

We review and revise the coded data as per client’s recommendations for content or style. Our Quality Assurance (QA) team cross-checks the revised file for accuracy. We mark all the revisions on the page proofs, which are later scanned and sent to clients in PDFs.


Our experts index and typeset the manuscript to be sent to the client for review and confirmation.

Printer Files Processing

Once the page proofs are approved and finalized, we create a print-ready PDF and send it to the client for approval.

We implement XML conversion process in tune with the Docbook DTD specification, using the exported XML file from InDesign. The encoded version is checked for errors, which are rectified to finally validate the XML file.
