My copy-editing services
If you are an independent academic author and you are unsure about whether to proceed with a full copy-edit, I can copy-edit a sample of no more than 1,500 words of your manuscript. I charge a flat fee for this service.
If you are an independent academic author and you would like advice on how to improve your writing but you feel confident in undertaking most of the legwork yourself, I can copy-edit a section or chapter of your manuscript. In addition to copy-editing a section of your manuscript, I provide written feedback on particular areas of your writing that you might need to focus on. I charge advisory copy-edits on a per word basis.
For a full copy-edit, I can work to a fee structure that suits your needs. Possible fee structures include:
- a fee per hour
- a fee per 1,000 words
- a fee per word
- a fixed fee.
My hourly rates are guided by the minimum rates recommended by the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
I use the Society for Editors and Proofreaders’ model terms & conditions.
For the sake of clarity, I am a sole trader, not a limited company or partnership.
