Whew!

Just got done with hours of close editing of an article manuscript that I am accepting. I have discovered that giving editorial advice to authors of accepted manuscripts with the acceptance saves considerable time on the other end, since the final manuscripts that come in are usually coming in with fewer problems. (There are still the issues of formatting tables appropriately, but I'll slowly craft better advice.)

In this particular case, the manuscript required extensive editing, literally hundreds of recommended changes from the nature of the article. Yes, I'm confident I made the right choice, but I think I'm going to head to the library to reward myself before heading back to journal editing work.
