Academic copy editor and proofreader

If you’re looking for a specialized copy editor and proofreader to achieve the full potential of your manuscript, you’ve come to the right place. I am a Master of Arts in Political Science with over 10 years of certified experience in editing books and academic papers in the fields of politics, philosophy, and international affairs.

I started my professional career as a copy editor for the scientific journals Colombia International and Colombian Economy, and I have worked with a diverse range of clients, including government organizations, research programs, and self-published authors, helping them to sharpen and adapt their content to specific audiences.

My goal is to help you look better in your own words without imposing my writing style. I go beyond grammar, spelling, and usage checks, and focus on producing consistent and well-structured copy, while maintaining your voice and style. I also bring my fact-checking skills to ensure that your audience receives accurate and valuable information.

What will you receive?

By hiring me, you will get an experienced copy editor and researcher with a knack for spotting potential errors and a critical eye for producing clean and compelling written pieces. At the end of each project, I will deliver Word Track and clean versions, along with a style sheet, proofreading marks in hard copy (if required), and a detailed account of queries made throughout the editing process. I am also qualified to work in different platforms according to your project’s needs and specifications (MS Word, iAnnotate, Google Docs, Adobe Acrobat Reader, and Scrivener). I am available for more than 30 hours a week, and my hourly fee is based on the Editorial Freelancers Association’s rate charts.
