Proof Edit Pro Ltd.

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


I offer speedy and competitively-priced proofreading and copy-editing services to academics and students. I have 10 years' experience proofreading Masters theses, PhDs, full-length monographs (for publishers including Routledge and Oxford University Press), and scholarly articles. My clients have had their work published in top-tier philosophy journals, including Mind, Canadian Journal of Philosophy, and British Journal of the History of Philosophy. While I have proofread for a broad range of disciplines, I am a specialist in proofreading philosophy and classics, holding a Masters in Ancient Philosophy from Oxford and currently reading for a PhD in Philosophy at Cambridge. I have significant experience proofreading documents for those whose first language is not English.


My service includes checking for all typographical, spelling, and grammar 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

  • Punctuation

  • Grammar

  • References (including bibliography)

  • Layout

  • Meaning

  • Clarity

  • Style

  • Language and word-choice

  • Indexing (where requested)



I charge a basic rate of £11 per 1,000 words for proofreading.* I charge £7 per 1,000 words for indexing. I can combine proofreading with indexing for £16 per 1,000 words. 

*For manuscripts written in poor English, or requiring copy-editing, higher rates apply.
