I run a professional copy editing service, with an emphasis on humanities and social sciences, and have considerable experience with academic writers including those with non-native English. I can also work on reports and dissertations. I have been a freelance in the publishing industry since the year 2000.
My experience is varied. Apart from academic copy editing, which forms the bulk of my work, it includes proofreading corporate literature for a local design company, and work on website content for Bloomsbury. Further back, it includes work on in-house and members' newsletters, including Edinburgh’s One World Shop and a local mental health project.
I am available all year.
I can also proofread against copy using either BSI (2005) marks or your preferred style.
Reports and articles
I can perform a full check on accuracy or consistency of text, including any source material, and suggest improvements in expression and phrasing.
I can make corrections to language, ensuring consistency of style, but this service does not include rewriting or restructuring arguments.
