Oxford Editing is an English-language editing firm, founded in 2006 by Dr. Matt J. Duffy, to help academic authors publish their research. We offer customized academic editing services of professional quality, at an affordable rate, with a rapid turnaround.
Our academic editing services include proofreading, copy editing, content or substantive editing, writing assistance, and verifying correct formatting of source citations, checking citations, and some translation. Some of the typical academic texts we edit are journal articles, books, conference papers, errant applications, and dissertations and theses. While we specialize in academic manuscripts, we can edit any document that needs editing, such as proposals, application materials (teaching philosophy statements and CVs), text books, and website copy. In addition to editing English language texts, we offer native language editors for French, Portuguese and Italian texts. We can edit limited German texts, such as footnotes.
Oxford Editing’s mission is to deliver first-rate, professional editing services to help our clients publish their work or receive funding.

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 can meet your deadline. 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 also serves to evaluate the level of edit your paper requires and helps us calculate the cost of editing your paper.
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.
