In our manuscript review, we check for grammar and mechanics of course, but we also help you consider the flow and organization of your material. If you know the target for your submission, we can also help ensure your article matches the style requirements for that specific journal.


Copyediting and proofreading: US$78.00 per hour

Additional services (e.g., substantive writing, researching): US$100.00 per hour

Rush jobs (less than our standard turnaround time): US$78.00 per hour + 50% premium

(For larger projects, please contact us for a per-project estimate.)


Please allow ample time for the editing of your material. Slots are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. For manuscripts longer than 16,000 words (all inclusive), we require notice at the time of reservation, so that we can assign extended hours to the job. Finally, although we endeavor to return edited versions on a timely basis, the time frame depends on the amount of work already scheduled in the queue.

We accept payment by personal check, university check, wire transfers, and credit card (through PayPal only).
