Services

My copy-editing services

Sample copy-edit

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.

Advisory copy-edit

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.

Full copy-edit

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.
