- Posted by: David Williams

The author of this article that appeared in the Times Educational Supplement rightly points out that it is hard to find a high quality academic editor and highlights five myths.
- The ‘good enough’ myth
- If you don’t pay peanuts you won’t get a monkey myth
- The native speaker myth
- The native co-author myth
- The ‘if it was published it must be OK’ myth
The article is good reading for anyone who is looking for a top quality academic editor.
