BA (Lon) MSt (Oxon)
Offering competitively priced academic author services, my growing team of Oxbridge-educated editors collectively boast over 20 years' experience editing Master's theses, PhDs/DPhils, and academic monographs (working with Routledge, Walter de Gruyter, Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, and Peter Lang). Our core clientele comprises everyone from PhD students to tenured professors at the world's most illustrious institutions, including Harvard and Oxford.
We have proofread and copy-edited hundreds of academic articles. Our clients have had their work printed in many well-known and prestigious journals, including Mind, Canadian Journal of Philosophy, British Journal for the History of Philosophy, The Review of Metaphysics, Oxford Art Journal, Classical Review, and Ancient Philosophy.
While our proofreading experience spans a broad range of disciplines, we specialise in Philosophy, Classics, and History (including the History of Art).
We have extensive experience editing documents for those whose first language is not English.
Our impeccable, cost-effective author services include correcting all typographical, spelling, and grammatical errors.
