Explicación del proceso de edición
All documents are edited on-screen in Microsoft Word with the ‘Track Changes’ tool turned on (Tools >> Track changes). This enables the author to see and print out all of the changes made to the document. Comments to the author are highlighted in yellow, within square brackets.
Following editing, two files are returned to the author. The Edit1 file shows all changes made to your manuscript (see below), while in the Final1 file the changes have been accepted and only the edited text is visible. The author must carefully check the Final1 file to ensure that his/her meaning has been retained in the edited manuscript. If you have any questions regarding the changes made to the manuscript, please return the manuscript to us along with any queries to be answered (see our Ask-the-Editor Service); there is no additional charge for this service.
Our editing method is illustrated in the following example.
The onset of penetrative strainn metamorphism is marked by a rapid elimination of poorly-oriented clastic micas in favour of numerous smaler different composition grains.
