Academic editing & proofreading

Copyediting | Proofreading | Proof-editing

You have worked hard on your dissertation, thesis, journal article or book and it is almost ready to be submitted, but first you need someone to check it for clarity, consistency, spelling and grammar. This is where copyediting and proofreading can help you ensure that your work is ready for submission. For more information get in touch.*

* If you are a student please check your institute’s regulations regarding the use of third-party proofreading services. Your institute’s regulations will have details about how third-party proofreading services can be used. Regulations may vary between institutes.   


Copyediting checks for clarity and consistency, and that your work has a clear and logical direction. Copyediting is typically done before proofreading.


Proofreading is the final check of your document prior to publication. A proofread can help to identify errors before submitting work for publication.


Proof-editing is a combined service, with copyediting and proofreading carried out at the same time.
