Exactly What Will I Receive from Your Academic Proofreading Services?
Most of our clients send their writing to us as Microsoft Word documents (although we can also work with other file formats) and our academic proofreaders then make necessary changes and add helpful comments directly to our clients’ electronic files.

- Corrections to eliminate all grammar, spelling, punctuation and typing errors, to establish consistency in stylistic and structural aspects of a document, and to clarify the intended meaning of the author when the writing is ambiguous or potentially misleading.
- Adjustments to observe the author instructions or publishing guidelines of the client’s target journal or press. References, abbreviations, notes, headings, tables and various other elements of research manuscripts frequently require adjustment during the academic editing process.
- Explanations of why the academic editor has made certain changes, particularly extensive or complex changes when the reasons may not be immediately obvious to the author.
- Suggestions for further changes that are not strictly necessary, but would nonetheless improve the writing style, sentence structure, authorial voice, organisation or other aspects of the research document if the author chooses to make them.
Our academic proofreading services are offered to each client in two versions of his or her original document. One is a clean version in which the changes made by the academic editor are incorporated into the text. The second is a tracked version that shows the editor’s work and gives the author creative control over which changes are accepted and which are rejected.
