COPY EDITING: Copy editors edit articles for AP style grammar and mechanics, word choice, appropriate paragraph and sentence length, formatting, logical transitions, clarity of language and structure, and general article flow. Copy editors are also responsible for making sure the article aligns with the FEM mission statement and handbook.
