What is Structural Editing?

Structural Editing (also known as substantive editing, developmental editing and comprehensive editing) involves looking at the document as a whole and checking if the content, structure, language and style are fit for the intended purpose and appropriate for the target audience. We may rewrite sections of the text to improve the flow and readability and to ensure that the style and tone of the writing is consistent. The actual content or story will be edited e.g. is all relevant content included, are there any loose ends or unanswered questions, does the story have pace, are the characters believable?
