Proof reading and editing

I offer editing and proofreading services for academics and postgraduate students for essaysdissertations and thesesjournal 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
