About us | Our services | Why copy edit? | Get in touch



Improve your impact


Fast, friendly and professional proofreading and editing of all scientific material including dissertations, theses, peer-reviewed journal articles, presentations, grant or research proposals and books.

Reference checking

Citation management software doesn't always get it right! We can check for format and style, and for the most recent version of the item being cited.

Copy Editing

A more specialised service including comprehensive editing, checking for consistency, clarity and flow.

"Copy editors act as the reader’s representative, writers need them to make sure the message

is being delivered the way the writer intended. Credibility is all important to the success of any publication, and, among other things, copy

editors protect their credibility."

– Merrill Perlman

Why should I have my work edited by a professional?

"The aim of copy-editing is to ensure that whatever appears in public is accurate, easy to follow, fit for purpose and free of error, omission, inconsistency and repetition. This process picks up embarrassing mistakes, ambiguities and anomalies, alerts the client to possible legal problems and analyses the document structure for the typesetter/designer."

– SfEP
