I offer editing and proofreading services for academics and postgraduate students for essays, dissertations and theses, journal articles and books.
For proofreading rates see here
My editing and proofreading covers the following:
- correcting of spelling, punctuation, grammar and formatting, and ensuring consistency of expression
- suggesting ways of reorganising or cutting long sentences and paragraphs
- using the comments feature of MSWord to indicate passages where the language (not the argument) is not clear
- if allowed by your institution, correcting spelling errors in references and bibliography and highlighting inconsistencies.
For professional reasons I if the job involves proofreading I cannot:
- paraphrase, edit or translate any part of the work, unless specifically authorised to do so by your institution or publisher
- alter or advise on structure or argument of the work, or add content
