Academic proofreading is for any document that has been edited and is nearly ready for submission or publication. We correct spelling, grammar, punctuation and typographical errors.
Experienced academic proofreaders
Your work needs to be judged on its academic merit and not be undermined by writing errors. Academic proofreading by our experienced team corrects language mistakes so you can submit or publish with confidence.
Any type of academic document can be proofread. We work with documents in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, Google Docs, Apple Pages, LaTeX and PDF. We can apply standards including AMA, APA, Chicago, IEEE, MHRA, Harvard and Vancouver.
When to choose proofreading
Academic proofreading is best for work that has been edited and is almost ready for publication or submission. Proofreading includes:
Correction of spelling, grammar, punctuation and typographical errors
Correction of the citation style where applicable
Check and correction of critical details such names of people, places and products
Notes using the comments feature where we see inconsistencies or wording that is unclear
Free revisions where we check changes as you finalise your work
Access at any time to your proofreader for advice and guidance
If you would like an expert to polish your writing in addition to correcting errors, our Academic Editing Service can provide what you need. We will suggest improvements to help you achieve the highest standard of academic English.
What you get
You will receive a document with all writing mistakes corrected that you can submit or publish with confidence.
We use track changes so you can see what we have corrected and you keep control of your document.
With PDF and PowerPoint documents, we mark up corrections by hand as there is no equivalent of track changes.
