Professional editing ensures that text is ready for publication or submission.

A member of the Institute of Professional Editors Limited, I apply professional editing and style standards to ensure that your material is of high quality.


Copyediting is a detailed review of text, undertaken after you have completed your final draft. This level of editing ensures that your text is readable, clear, and consistent:

– correcting spelling, grammar and punctuation
– correcting inappropriate, ambiguous or incorrect statements
– improving readability
– ensuring a consistent writing style
– checking the application of a style guide
– checking cross-references within the text
– ensuring that previews, summaries, and end-of-chapter questions reflect content.



Proofreading is a quality assurance checking of text, undertaken after it is is finalised. This level of editing picks up small anomalies and errors in text:

– correcting spelling, grammar and punctuation
– checking for typographic and other anomalies.

Academic material

I am experienced in working with journal articles, research, and theses, to ensure they are ready for publication or submission.

I strictly follow the standards stipulated by the Australian Institute of Professional Editors, to ensure the highest professional integrity in this process.

Before beginning a project, I will work with you to determine your requirements, and communicate with you/your supervisor closely across the length of the editing process.
