Our experienced team of proofreaders will correct typographical errors, including identifying errors often missed by spell-checkers and grammar-checkers. More specifically, we will :
- ensure the spelling, punctuation and grammar of your work is correct
- advise on the layout of the document
- check for adherence to the rules of submission for the intended journal or conference, including referencing
- use Track Changes to allow you to view the changes that are required
In the first instance you should email us approximately 1000 words of the work you wish to have proofread. We will make an initial appraisal to determine that the English is of a standard that can be successfully improved by proofreading. We may decline assignments if we consider that the standard of written English requires a re-write or academic editing as opposed to sophisticated proof-reading. If we are able to accept the assignment you will receive a quotation via email. Although each assignment is different, we aim to complete the proofreading of a paper of up to 5000 words within 10 working days of receiving a signed agreement. Payment is due in advance.
Proofreading fees are comparable with other proofreading services. Payment can be by bank transfer, credit card or PayPal. To receive a quote or for further information, email: firstname.lastname@example.org / +44 (0) 118 324 6938. We accept work in Microsoft Word (all versions including RTF). We will not accept pdf files.
