I can help you improve the clarity and consistency of your language, increasing your chances of publication. I work with books/book chapters, journal articles, conference papers, and grant applications.

I understand how important it is to be published in peer-reviewed journals and to obtain research grants. Getting your submission into the best possible shape is key if you are to obtain research funding and publish in high-quality journals.

Academic Services

Proofreading

Proofreading is a final check on your document before it is published. This service picks up any last typographical errors and formatting issues.

Copyediting

I will ensure there is a consistent, accurate presentation throughout and that the text flows. Errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation will be corrected. I can also check references, and ensure that figures and images are in the right place, and that hyperlinks work.

Developmental Editing

This is the earliest stage of editing and addresses the broad issues of structure and organization, the development of a coherent narrative, engagement with sources, and the authorial tone.

Book Proposals

Your book proposal, whether academic or trade, should argue the business case for why your book should exist and persuade a publisher to invest in you. I can assist with all aspects of book proposal preparation.
