The below standard rates apply to my services for works up to 10,000 words. For longer works, rates will depend on the difficulty of the assignment. 

Basic Proofreading: 10 USD (8 UK pounds) per 1000 words

This service is for basic proofreading to catch typos and simple mistakes. The service is for someone who is already content with the overall language of their work but wants to avoid simple mistakes.  The copyediting provided by most academic publishers does not include proofreading.

Stylistic Proofreading: 20 USD (16 UK pounds) per 1000 words

This service can be thought of as a proofreading plus service. It includes the proofreading but, in addition, includes light editing to improve readability and flow. This is a good service for someone who is mostly content with the overall language of their work but wants to make it sound better.

Full Editing: 30 USD (23 UK pounds) per 1000 words

My full editing service includes proofreading but, in addition, takes a more in-depth look at your writing with an aim to seriously improve its readability and organization. This would be a good service for a non-native speaker or for a student or early career person who is trying to meet a high standard. We all need help sometimes, and I can help to get your work to a high standard.

Content Editing: 40 USD (30 UK pounds) per 1000 words 

This service is for Philosophy only. Are you a student or early career fellow who not only wants full editing but also wants advice on content. You might be wondering, “Are my arguments convincing, strong, and absent obvious objections?” I can answer these and other questions. This is a full editing service that also includes content advice. I have a PhD in Philosophy and have written hundreds of thousand of words of academic, philosophical material and have published numerous philosophy articles. For writing samples for PhD and MA programs, I offer to look at second drafts at a discounted rate. Often writing samples take more than one pass.

All changes for all services will be made using Microsoft Word’s Track Changes feature. You can decide whether to accept or reject.
