COPYEDITING AND PROOFREADING
FOR ACADEMIC AUTHORS
IMPROVE THE LANGUAGE AND PRESENTATION OF YOUR ACADEMIC WRITING
Whether you're planning to publish a journal article or a monograph, a professional copyedit or proofread will improve it.
You’ve spent a lot of time writing – now it’s time to pass it over for a thorough review of the language and style.
You want to know that the sentence structure is correct and that your writing reads well, especially if English isn’t your first language. I can help you with that.
I’ll make sure that the correct style guide is followed for spelling, punctuation and grammar, and that there is consistency in capitalisation, hyphenation and the use of numbers.
I’ll also check that your references are styled properly and that in-text citations match the reference list or bibliography.

WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU
My copyediting service checks for:
- consistent style and tone suitable for your audience
- effective sentence structure and narrative flow
- consistent use of capitalisation, hyphenation and numbers
- accuracy of spelling, punctuation and grammar
- word repetition or language tics
If your book has notes, references, a bibliography, a suggested reading list, or any combination of these I will also ensure:
- footnotes or endnotes are numbered sequentially and positioned correctly
- consistency of styling for references
- consistency of styling for bibliography or reading list
- in-text citations match the reference list or bibliography
While I will identify incomplete or missing references, I do not verify references or track down incomplete citations.
