Academic Manuscript Editing

Whether you are a university undergrad or working toward a PhD, if you have writing you’d like to ensure is correct, cohesive, and clearly presented, we will collaborate with you to provide deep feedback, substantive (comprehensive) editing, copyediting, and proofreading for:

  • Academic journal articles
  • Web content
  • Dissertations
  • CVs
  • University applications
  • Essays

Note: our coaches assist clients with their work and will edit it to ensure it is dynamically presented, cohesive, well-organized, and clear while maintaining the writer’s voice and intension. They will not, however, provide fully pre-written academic essays or university applications.

Guidelines for best practices for how students should collaborate with academic coaches and editors are available HERE.

Note: We strongly recommend that prior to working with our academic coaches and editors you receive written permission from your academic advisor for your own protection.


How Does the Relationship Work with My Editor?

Your writing coach/editor will collaborate with you to determine what plan and kind of attention would be of best benefit to you and your writing. Whether you are looking for structural guidance, sentence-level adjustment for correctness and clarity, or help with formatting and citations, your editor will work with you to determine what your manuscript or journal article needs.

How Do My Editor and I Work Together?

You and your editor will have a designated team area in a secure online platform that enables you to chat in real time and exchange documents (and keep them on a “bookshelf” for easy reference). You’re also welcome to connect over video conference, chat on the phone, or do a hybrid of all of these methods depending on what works best for you.

What Do I Need to Do to Begin?

We begin with a signed agreement, so you know your work and ideas are confidential, how the relationship works, and how payment is made. Then once payment for the initial block of time- either an introductory block of 3 hours or 5 hours- is made, we get you set up in our editors platform and you’re good to go!
