Minor editing generally means the correction of obvious errors in an article that has been marked with the {{Minor Edits Allowed}} template. These minor edits might be spelling errors, wiki formatting errors, minor grammar issues like case matching.

Note that some articles have been associated with a particular wiki journal that may have special rules governing minor editing (example: spelling rules for a particular country might apply). Before you do an invited minor edit, make sure you know any journal-specific rules that apply to each article.

Also, the first author of each article can tell you not to edit their article. This is their decision to make and once it is made there is nobody who can over-rule the decision. Before you make a minor edit, check to see if there is a "leave me alone" list for the article. The "leave me alone" list should be right under the first author's name near the top of the article.
