Why Choose Oxford Editing’s Academic Editing Service
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.
Experience and Expertise
We carefully vet our professional editors, most of whom are full-time academic writing and language specialists. Some editors have doctorate or master’s degrees and are still active in their fields, conducting research or teaching, while others are retired from successful academic careers. Our editors have published in medical journals; served as editors of medical and law journals; written, edited, or translated articles or books, including textbooks; or worked as professional editors for decades. They are all native speakers of English, with most residing in the United States, although some of editors live in other countries. Our conscientious and careful editors have helped countless authors throughout the world publish their work or receive funding.
Confidentiality and Security
Oxford Editing’s academic editing services follow the highest publishing-industry standards. We treat your material with the utmost respect, and hold your documents in the strictest confidence. We will never release any information about our clients or their work to a third party. We are happy to sign a Nondisclosure Agreement (NDA) upon request.
How We Help You
When we receive your manuscript, we take careful note of the requirements you specify. We must know your final deadline, the journal name or stylistic guide, such as Chicago Manual of Style, and whether you require British or American English. Susan Hatch Morgan, our Managing Editor, then identifies an editor in or familiar with your field who can meet your deadline. The editor prepares a sample edit of 500 words (for documents 5,000 words or more), or 10 percent of a submission (for documents less than 5,000 words).
The sample edit demonstrates how your editor will edit your paper and also allows us to calculate the cost of editing your paper based on the editing level the sample edit reveals.
We offer three editing levels: the light edit is a line edit or copy edit (grammar, word choice, punctuation, and formatting style); the medium level may contain a higher volume of copy edits and some substantive edits, such as analysis of and proposed solutions for argumentation, organization, and development of the thesis; a heavy edit has a higher concentration of substantive and developmental edits.
