My approach to academic proofreading involves ensuring that texts are perfect in terms of grammar and syntax and that your thoughts and ideas are communicated clearly to your reader. I also work to make sure that terminology, acronyms, figure numbering, referencing, and many other aspects are consistent, and where you have worked to a style guide can check your work against this. All of this means that, when it comes to defending your thesis, ensuring that your article is published, or putting your work out there, you can be confident that no errors, mistakes, or inconsistencies will distract your reader from understanding your results and following your argument.
I began proofreading while studying for my Master’s degree in English Literature, and that academic background has helped in proofreading academic texts in fields ranging from mechanical engineering chemical, thermodynamics, and physics to philosophy, fashion and textile design, and film studies.
I am familiar with all major referencing styles, including Harvard, Chicago, MLA, MHRA, and APA, and regularly work with clients who want their texts to adhere to the conventions of all forms of written English, such as British, Australian, and American English.
My academic clients include PhD and postgraduate students and established academics, from institutions in more than a dozen countries, including the Norwegian Research Laboratory for Universal Design, the University of Antwerp, the Institut de Formation de l’Éducation Nationale Luxembourg, KTH Royal Institute of Technology Stockholm, the Royal College of Art, and the University of Padova.
