Oxford Editing’s Academic Editing Services

Oxford Editing offers professional academic editing services for English language manuscripts. We are a small company offering select expert editors. Our editors are all native English speakers, with solid editing and academic credentials. Some of our editors are retired from professional careers; others are dedicated, full-time editors who enjoy editing academic texts; while others are still active in their career as researchers or professors. Our editors hold MAs, PhDs, JDs with one language specialist board certified as an Editor in the Life Sciences (ELS) by the Board of Editors in the Life Sciences (BELS).

We find that generalist editors who specialize in academic editing and are language specialists often make the best language editors and can best meet the needs of most of our clients. We generally try to match you with an academic editor with expertise in your field, and some editors have content expertise, for example our legal editors, science editors, and material science editors, and so can do more of a content review (which is not the same as a peer review). We can provide background information on our editors as needed. Please inquire.

We can handle almost any academic discipline including the sciences, economics, medicine, the social sciences, humanities, and communications. Click here for a full list of academic subjects.
