Providing a safety net for academics and researchers

Academics always find it challenging to create the appropriate amount of time to effectively and accurately edit their work. Academics teach, research, review, and all too often now also deal with an increasing administrative workload.

Yet your written work is your reputation, and at times crucial to securing grants.

Having a fresh, practiced set of eyes run over your work to ensure the final messages are as crisp, clear and error-free as the rest of your professional practice provides both insurance and peace of mind.

Whether journal articles, research proposals, or funding applications – where missed opportunities often take on real financial cost – we can help ensure you make your points the way you intend.

We detect any logical flaws in arguments, suggesting changes or additions. We help remove clumsy phrasing, repetition and excess wordiness, ensuring your points are made clearly and in a sensible sequence.

We identify referencing errors, and ensure citations are accurate.

We also check your work meets the individual and at times unique format and style rules of the institutions or journals you are addressing.

Naturally we also eliminate the spelling mistakes and grammatical slips that creep into any writer’s work.

We edit:

  • Academic journal articles
  • Monographs
  • Research reports
  • Conference papers
  • Theses and dissertations
  • Also:
    • Confirmations of Candidacy
    • Ethics statements
  • Abstracts
  • Curriculum documentation (including online)
  • Grant applications
  • Textbooks
  • Conference papers
  • Book reviews
  • Funding applications
  • Position applications and contract renewal submissions

We have a supportive approach to academic editing, with appropriate feedback routines, and strict adherence to established academic editing guidelines to ensure your own voice is heard.

In particular, we can help academics edit their work for popular reading, looking at more broadly accessible language and structure
