The Reliable Editor provides professional proofreading services for professors, lecturers, post-doctoral researchers, research students and business customers. Our aim is to meet the growing demand for English-language services from academics and business people around the world. We have extensive experience proofreading and editing academic papers for the authors of PhD theses, dissertations, conference papers, journal articles, books, essays and other professional documents such as research proposals primarily within the Social Sciences and the Humanities fields.
The Reliable Editor will handle your manuscript with meticulous care. When you send us your article, paper, book, or grant proposal for a language review, we will read it line by line, checking for grammar, spelling, wording, punctuation, and coherence. We will confirm that the tables and figures are in the right place and labeled and referenced correctly. If requested, we can also format your paper correctly according to your journal’s requirements. In a more in-depth edit, we can ensure that your paper is well structured, from the paragraph level to the heading level, making sure that your paper flows logically and meets your journal editor’s expectations, from the abstract all the way down to the references.
Whether your manuscript or academic paper requires formatting, proofreading, copyediting, or a content review, we can clarify it on multiple levels. The Reliable Editor offers high-quality editing services at an affordable rate and with a quick turnaround. For a demonstration of the type of work our carefully vetted editors do, submit your manuscript for a no-obligation sample edit.
Express Proofreading Service
If your book or manuscript is already polished and only needs a final read for minor lapses or typos, we can offer you low rates and a quick turnaround time. We specifically created this service for the author whose manuscript has already been reviewed by another editor or proofreader and is in the final draft stage. This is the service to request if you are about to go to press, upload your file to the Internet, or otherwise distribute it to your readers.
- $2.25/page (page = 250 words) when marking hard copy (printout)
- $2.00/page for corrected electronic copy (MS Word file)
Basic Proofreading Service
Our basic service includes proofing for spelling mistakes, typos, punctuation problems, capitalization errors, and awkward grammar. If your manuscript has been peer reviewed, workshopped by a writers’ group, or has gone through several drafts to get it to finally say just what you want, this might be the service for you.
- $3.25/page (page = 250 words) when marking hard copy (printout)
- $2.95/page for corrected electronic copy (MS Word file)
Extended Proofreading / Line-by-Line Copyediting Service
This is our most requested service. Extended proofreading / line-by-line copyediting includes everything that comes with our basic service package. In addition, we will help you with the overall structure of your manuscript. Is your writing clear? Does it make sense? Is your word choice appropriate? Are there any redundancies or inconsistencies in the plot or narration? Are your characters or situations believable? During the editing process, we will leave you comments and questions in the margin of the document that address these issues and more.
- $4.25/page (page = 250 words) when marking hard copy (printout)
- $3.95/page for corrected electronic copy (MS Word)
Deep Editing / Rewriting Service
If your text needs an extensive rewrite or a more aggressive edit, we can help you overhaul it. (Please note, this service is rarely needed. The line-by-line copyediting service is usually adequate at addressing most issues.)
- $12.00/page (page = 250 words) when marking hard copy (printout)
- $10.00/page for corrected electronic copy (MS Word)
