Note: Automated editing applications are not at the point where you can rely on them to produce polished, grammar-correct manuscripts. Use them as a first-pass tool to clean up your manuscript before you send it to your living (human) editor. These tools can help to clean up the common issues and save your editor time (and you money). Understand that sometimes these tools can be wrong or miss obvious mistakes that your editor will catch.
