Proof Edit Pro Ltd.

by L.R. Chapman BA (Lon) MSt (Oxon)


I offer speedy and competitively priced academic proofreading and copy-editing services. I have 10 years' experience editing Master's theses, PhDs, academic monographs (for publishers including Routledge and Oxford University Press), and scholarly articles. I have also proofread general non-fiction books. My academic clients have had their work published in top-tier philosophy journals including Mind, Canadian Journal of Philosophy, and British Journal for the History of Philosophy. While my proofreading experience spans a broad range of disciplines (not limited to the humanities), I specialise in philosophy and classics (including philology). I hold a Master's in Ancient (Greek) Philosophy from Oxford and I am currently reading for my PhD in Philosophy at Cambridge. I have significant experience proofreading documents for those whose first language is not English. 


My service includes correcting all typographical, spelling, and grammatical errors. Where desired, I can make stylistic changes to render your work more coherent and concise. In summary, my service comprises the following areas:

  • Spelling

  • Layout and formatting

  • Clarifying meaning
