How it works

First Contact

Fill out the form or send me an email ([email protected]) including the word count, target audience and type of text, for instance, a 3,500 words article manuscript to be submitted to an academic journal. I may also ask for a sample of your text to get an idea of the level of editing required.


If I think we will work together well, I’ll reply with a quote, which will include price (depending on the requirements, I may quote per project or hour), payment terms, estimation of the project length and my availability to start working on it. My quote is based on an assessment of the editorial intervention needed, length, complexity and appearance of your text. Please note that my rates align with the CIEP’s suggested minimum rates.

Final details

If we are both happy and ready to proceed with the work, I might ask you some more questions about the editorial requirements before I start working on your text. When I finish, I will return an edited manuscript using Tracked Changes and comments features of Microsoft Word. It may include a number of queries for you to address.

Edited Manuscript

Once you have sent over my queries and I did the final tweaks based on them, you will receive three final documents (which vary depending on the service) and my invoice.
