About the course

Via this course, you will be trained to perform the Citation Editing service as an additional service to Proofreading & Editing or as a stand-alone service. Inside, you'll find all the information you need to hit the ground running. Feel free to refer back to the course resources whenever you need a reference.

Taking this course should take you 2 hours, depending on how familiar you are already with citation styles. Once you've completed the course successfully, we will enable the Citation Editing service in your editor account so you can accept Citation Editing assignments in addition to Proofreading & Editing!
