Professional Editorial Assistance

You may want to hire a professional editor for help with final manuscript preparation. If you do, talk it over with your faculty advisor or advisors. Your mentors can help clarify which areas of your writing would benefit from expert help. A reminder: If you do hire an editor, you are solely responsible for the contract and all contract details you make with the editor. The list of editors we provide here is neither an endorsement of any editor nor a guarantee of any level of service to the student.

Before talking to an editor, be ready to clearly explain the scope of work you wish the editor to perform. To help the editor perform efficiently and quickly, be as precise as possible about your areas of need. Make a flexible timeline before you contact an editor because they are often busy with other projects and must schedule time to carry out the work on your document. Moreover, an editor may recommend edits that are not included in your scope of work and these edits may add to the time and cost involved.
