Oxford Editing, an English language editing firm, was founded in 2006 by Dr. Matt Duffy who wanted to help other academics publish their research. Oxford Editing offers customized academic editing services of professional quality, at an affordable rate, and with a rapid turnaround.
Our academic editing services include copy editing, content or substantive editing, proofreading, formatting, citation checking, and graphic design. We edit research papers, proposals, journal articles, conference papers, books, dissertations and theses. We also edit statements of teaching philosophy and other application materials, text books, and website copy. While we specialize in academic manuscripts, we can edit any document that needs editing.
Our mission is to help our clients get published or receive funding by delivering top-notch, professional editing services.

Personalized Academic Editing Services
We strive to offer personalized academic editing services that surpass common expectations. Your editor serves as your advocate, working deeply, intelligently, and precisely to ensure that your manuscript is flawless.
How We Can Help You
When we receive your manuscript, we take careful note of the requirements you specify. If necessary, we request more information on your deadline, the journal name or formatting or style. Susan Hatch Morgan, our Managing Editor, then identifies an editor in or familiar with your field who is available within your timetable. The editor prepares a sample edit of 500 words or 10 percent of a submission under 5,000 words. The sample edit demonstrates the type of edit your manuscript will receive.
The sample edit uncovers and demonstrates the level of edit your paper requires and helps us calculate the cost of editing your document.
The levels of edit range from a structural edit that considers flow and logical order to proofreading a final time before submitting to the publisher. We quantify these editing levels as heavy, medium, and light editing.
