How We Help You
When we receive your manuscript, we carefully note any editing instructions you provide, especially your final deadline; the journal name or stylistic guide, such as Chicago Manual of Style; and whether you require British or American English. Susan Hatch Morgan, our Managing Editor, then identifies an editor in or familiar with your field who can meet your deadline. The editor prepares a sample edit of 500 words for documents 5,000 words or more, or 10 percent of submissions under 5,000 words. The sample edit demonstrates how your editor will edit your paper and also allows us to calculate the cost of editing your paper based on the editing level the sample edit reveals.
We offer three editing levels: a light edit, which is a line edit, or copy edit (grammar, word choice, punctuation, and formatting style); a medium edit, which may contain a higher volume of line edits and some substantive edits, such as analysis of and proposed solutions for structural problems; and a heavy edit, which may have a higher concentration of substantive edits and/or line edits.

To submit a document for a price quote and sample edit, please click here. For an accurate quote, please send your entire document for the sample edit. We must have the complete document to evaluate the cost. In some instances, we will evaluate a portion of a document. Please note, however, that without the entire document, we cannot provide you with a firm price quote.
