WHAT I MEAN TO SAY CLEAR AND PROFESSIONAL COPY-EDITING AND PROOFREADING
Academic Editorial Services
A student looking for an expert to ensure your paper conforms to your department's style guide?
A journal editor looking for style and formatting consistency across all the articles in a volume or issue?
A non-native English speaker looking for help polishing the English in your writing?
An academic supervisor looking for a professional and reliable proofreader to recommend to your students?
I offer professional editorial and reference-checking services for all levels of academic writing, from undergraduate essays to journal articles and scholarly monographs.
In addition to my freelance editing and proofreading experience, I am educated to master's level, with a background in philosophy and English literature. I spent ten years working as an editor and editorial manager with higher education publisher *Research and six months as interim department manager of the chemistry department at King's College London.
I work within a wide range of academic disciplines but specialize in the arts, humanities (in particular, philosophy and literary theory), social sciences (in particular, political science and gender studies), education, and business and management studies.
Whatever your academic editorial needs, get in touch today to discuss your requirements. If you need a quick turnaround, enquire about my express service (subject to my availability).
Editorial Services for Students
Your writing, whether it be a piece of coursework, a thesis, a dissertation, or a research paper, should be evaluated based on the quality of your ideas and how well you understand the subject matter, without typos and poor English getting in the way. A professional proofreader can help eliminate these distractions so your writing is judged on its academic merit alone.
Academic integrity is my top priority, and it is crucial that your work remains your own. I will proofread student texts for spelling, grammar, punctuation, sense, and consistency, but I will never write, rewrite or substantially edit the content of your work. Please note that I require written proof from your department or supervisor that you have permission to use the services of an editorial professional before I will accept any work from you.
Editorial Services for Academics
In the current "publish or perish" academic climate, having a regular output of innovative and clearly written academic writing has never been more important. An editorial professional can help ensure that typos, awkward wording, and inconsistencies don't undermine your ideas, and a fresh pair of eyes can give your research a better chance of being accepted in the top journals in your field.
