Publishing with Precision
Even high-quality research takes on little value when described in poorly written prose that often leads to misunderstanding and misinterpretation—instead of publication.

You deserve finely honed editing that presents your findings and conclusions with all of the subtlety, precision, and effect necessary in academia. The only way to assure full and accurate conveyance of your ideas is through having your manuscript evaluated by highly experienced specialists in academic editing—before submitting it for peer review.

Academic Editing and Proofreading Service FAQ

We proofread and edit academic projects of all types and match them to the appropriate writing editor.

Yes! We correct grammar as part of our academic proofreading service.

Journal article proofreading and editing
Grammar, typographical errors, misspellings, punctuation, clarity, comma splices, sentence fragments, run-on sentences, subject-verb disagreement, and verb tense, flow, transition, phrasing ambiguities, audience appropriateness, organization, structure, theme, rhetorical consistency, levels of diction, lexical register, rhythm, and colloquialisms.

Journal article formatting
Specific to your school and citation style.

If you send your journal article in Microsoft Word format, we can return two copies to you when finished. One is the original with changes highlighted. The other is the final version.

All of our journal article editors have doctoral degrees and years of training as teachers, published authors, and professionals in various disciplines. We provide the right editor for your needs.

No. The editing function has been a long-time feature and the files we send you are for a PC or Mac.

We much prefer Microsoft Word because of its Track Changes feature. However, if you check with us first, we support digital texts in a range of formats (e.g., Microsoft Word, Works, AppleWorks, Pages, Rich Text, and Open Office).

Our editors ensure that your journal article complies with your style requirements. Specify whether you are using APA, MLA, Chicago, CSE, either of the Canadian styles, Harvard, Turabian, International English, ASA, Australian, Vancouver, Oxford Style, or another citation style of your choosing.

A member of our journal article editing staff can usually respond within two to three hours. We complete most journal articles within a few business days. An editor and proofreader will accept it only if we can have the finished journal article back to you before your deadline.

Proofreading and editing are ~1 cent per word; the exact price can be determined using our cost calculator. Formatting is ½ cent per word.

We currently take PayPal, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Visa, Visa Electron, Visa Debit, Maestro, Switch/Solo, bankcards, and SquareUp. The method of payment is a secure system with industry standard 128-bit encryption. This is the premier form of encryption available for Internet transactions and is the same level of security used in cash machines (ATMs) and most retail stores. Please note: An account is not required to process your credit card and our staff never see your personal data.

The proofreading and editing rate is based on word count and your choice between proofreading and editing or formatting too. Unlike other journal article editing companies, we do not have confusing editing rates per page or vague quotes. We provide exact figures for editing services. Send us your file and specify editing and proofreading and whether you want formatting too.

MS Word has a feature that you can use to obtain a word count. Alternatively, send it to us. We will calculate the amount and send you an email with a link to your invoice and payment options. If you want to calculate it yourself, multiply the number of words in your journal article times 0.012 for proofreading and editing or times 0.017 for proofreading, editing, and formatting. For instance: 30,000 x 0.012 = $360 [USD].

There is a minimum $50 [USD] charge.

We reword individual sentences. We rearrange sentences. We offer suggestions to improve the organization of paragraphs and sections within your journal article. Rewriting would constitute plagiarism and is not an option.

We consider the issues surrounding intellectual copyright and confidentiality to be crucial. Only your journal article editor and a managing editor have access to your journal article. Each of our staff members is required to sign a copy of the confidentiality agreement, which ensures that under no circumstances can an employee share your journal article with anyone. If you require a separate non-disclosure agreement, contact us. Unless you request otherwise, all journal articles and related files are deleted after sixty days. We do not sell, trade, transfer, rent or share ANY information with ANY other party. All journal articles reviewed by our editors remain the intellectual property of you, the original author. In keeping with our strict confidentiality, we never release names or titles without prior consent. For further information, view our privacy policy.

We make use of the most powerful and updated security measures including the industry standard in encryption (128-bit secure socket layer). This is the highest level of security commercially available and is the same standard of security used in cash machines (ATMs) and by many retail stores. To protect your credit card information, we have partnered with PayPal and SquareUp to offer you the most trusted financial transaction systems on the Internet. The entire payment process is conducted through one of their secure websites. No banking information or credit card data is ever collected or stored by us.

You always maintain ownership and copyright. We make no claim on your copyright, and we do not require credit or acknowledgement beyond the fees for the services rendered. It is a commonly accepted practice for some writers to credit us as their editor and this is always appreciated.

All of our editors and proofreaders must, at a minimum: (a) be native speakers of English; (b) have at least five years of professional experience as a writing editor; (c) have a doctoral degree; and (d) provide samples of their writing, proofreading and editing. A typical editor has more than fifteen years of professional experience and is published in his or her chosen field.

We are confident that our journal article proofreading services are among the best in the industry. We are a professional company focused on providing you the best service possible. Each journal article is proofread twice before returning it to you. If you are not completely satisfied, you can resubmit your journal article for further editing/proofreading.

Journal article editors are available nearly twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Our administrative staff is available between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. CST (GMT −6); we typically answer messages within a few hours.

Our global headquarters is based in the United States in Chicago, Illinois. Your communications are channeled through this office.

Even the best writers benefit from an impartial, professional and thorough look at their journal article. Our editors recognize things in your journal article that become unnoticeable to you. After you have done several drafts, reviewing and revising, that familiarity with the journal article results in your filling in missing text and skipping over errors when you read.

Your journal article will be print-ready subject to the state of the project when submitted to us.

No. We edit all sorts of styles, dialects, special kinds of formatting and other types of creativity. If there is something you do not want us to edit, mention this when you email the journal article.
