For the language editing, formatting and proofreading of academic papers and manuscripts for submission or publication.

Send me an email to enquire or for a quotation.


I have edited over 700 papers, book chapters, reports and dissertations in the social sciences, humanities and beyond.

Most (but not all) of my customers are not native speakers of English and need language editing for the correctness and readability of their academic English expression.

I also format manuscripts to APA standards or to the specific requirements of the targeted journal, book editor, institution or publisher.


Diligent, detailed, careful copy editing work, including adherence to Journal's specifications.

Dr. Acreman did a great job with editing the article. Along with improving the language and structure of the paper, he also helped with adherence to the journal's guidelines.

Stephen did a great job proofreading my paper: very thorough corrections, suggestions and comments.

I've worked with Stephen as a proofreader for several papers and his work is always impeccable.

Stephen did a wonderful job with my manuscript.

Who am I?
