content editing

Editing is the process of selecting, arranging and preparing text, visual or audio data and processing it through making corrections, organizing and making modifications on the content in the file so as to produce a consistent, accurate and complete content. As an editor one looks at the grammar, sentence structure, consistency to the topic, flow of the paragraphs and the ability of reader to understand what has been written (Gross, 1993).

Both chapters in general are suitable for publishing the grammar content in both chapters is generally up to standard. However a few grammatical errors are present in the kmg text; there is a bit of repetition in some of the sentences. Misspellings too are present in the text. It would be best if the text was revised so as to correct the small errors that are present so as to publish a complete text free from grammatical errors which would make reading the content harder for the reader (Fidge, 2002). The kmd chapter does not contain any grammatical errors and based on grammar it is suitable for publishing. The sentences have been constructed in a clear way and the reader would find it easier to read and understand the content.

Both the kmd and kmg chapters have clear and consistent paragraphing. The contents of the paragraphs are in alignment to on e another. As the writer is explaining both about psychology and its relation to other sciences and the relation between reductionism and holistic disciplines, they have arranged and organised the contents in the paragraphs in such a way that the content is understood from the top; the previous paragraph explains and introduces the next paragraph for example the evolution of psychology explains and gives reader information and what to expect in the current and future studies. This makes understanding of the context a whole lot easier, the reader gets to have a preview of what will be next. For example in the kmd text the writer explains about reductionism its history, then its definition; later they talk about holistic and give its history and then final eventually does a comparison of the two.

As a reader and learner, both texts are suitable and understandable to read, both chapters could be sold too. According to how the author has organized and done their best to expound and clarify the meaning of the context, based on the respective topics. The writer has researched and put into consideration any data relevant to the topics. They have first started with the definition of what psychology, sociology, cognitive sciences are. Then the author goes ahead to illustrate the evolution of each science, then compares psychology to the other social sciences and economics. This makes both chapters suitable and content self explanatory for sale to the public. The content is also written in a language and vocabulary that is easily read and understood.

With the sophisticated definitions and clear and parallel paragraphing of the work and content in the chapters; through also use of easy to understand vocabulary and sticking to the topic, the writer is able to put across what the chapters are meant for and what they are supposed to represent and explain. Both chapters are able to expound and discuss what is required to make the readers and students gain knowledge about what psychology, reductionism and holistic is. The author explains their origin and their relation to human beings, what roles each component plays. The aim of the topics is to give the reader knowledge about what the topic requires. The writer has used both history and the present information on both reductionism and holistic to explain behaviour in psychology.

Generally, the contexts are both satisfactory and have more positivity to them than negativity. The paragraphs are aligned properly, with each paragraph giving ample information. The writer has also taken the liberty to research and get more information from different sources. The author too has properly cited and referenced their work. This is an advantage to the reader since it helps the reader be able to access more information or he/ she would want to get any clarification on a certain point they can be able to access it. The topic sentence introduces the paragraph, while the paragraph explains or gives meaning to the topic sentence. Use of illustrations too has aided in making it easier to understand the text.

The author of the kmd and kmg chapters has done their best to explain and clarify on all the topics to be discussed. They have gathered enough information to make the content more informed and able to carry a lot of meaning and definition that makes it enough for the reader to understand. Through the use of illustrations and a clear definition of the origin of each content, aids one to know the beginning and growth of psychology, reductionism and holistic.

In conclusion both the chapters, through a quick revision would be appropriate for publication. With the clear definition of what psychology is and its study and relation to the other social sciences and also the comparison of reductionism and holistic relative to psychology and study of behaviour, the readers are assured of quality material for reading.
