Clear Edit Proof Reading & Editing Editing and proof reading services

Editing, proofreading, and formatting for academics and students

If you're writing an academic work, we can help you with expressing yourself clearly and accurately, and formatting your work to the correct style.

Editing and proofreading for academics
Professional journals require articles to reach a high standard of written English before they are accepted for publication. This can be a real challenge for English as a Second Language (ESL) authors (and for many native English speakers too). We'll assist you with expressing yourself clearly, correctly, and smoothly, using the language appropriate to your discipline.

Editing and proofreading for students
We've edited dissertations and theses on a variety of topics including accounting, biology, chemistry, business management, and sociology. We have also edited theses for many ESL students.

Services for academics and students
You choose the level of service you require, meaning you pay only for what you need help with, keeping your cost to a minimum. Tell us what you'd like us to check for:

  • Grammar, spelling, and punctuation (basic service)
  • Consistency of formatting (headings, paragraphing, etc.)
  • Formatting follows style guide (e.g. APA)
  • Formatting of citations (e.g. author-date)
  • Formatting of references (e.g. APA, Harvard, Vancouver)
  • Special request (e.g. format tables, ensure spelling and punctuation follows US or UK style)

We offer subsidised hourly rates to academics and students.

Academics: $50/hour (+ GST of 15% - applies to New Zealand-based clients only)

Students: Please enquire.

On average we process 1,000-2,000 words per hour, depending on the service required and standard of the writing. For ESL students we usually process 500-750 words per hour, depending on the number of changes required. For a more accurate estimate, please send us a representative sample of your document - for example from the middle of your document.
