academic proofreading

At Proofreading Services UK, we have helped hundreds of PhD students and academics with their proofreading and editing requirements. Our editors have extensive experience of professionally proofreading research papers, theses, journal articles and other manuscripts. If you are looking for high-quality, professional assistance at an affordable price, we can help.

Key reasons to choose Proofreading Service UK for your PhD/academic proofreading requirements

1. Highly experienced academic editors

All of our academic editors have the highest qualifications (Masters/PhDs) from leading British universities and a minimum of three years’ experience proofreading in academic disciplines. Many also hold membership to professional proofreading and editing bodies, such as the Society for Editors & Proofreaders (SfEP) and the Council of Science Editors (CSE).


2. An academic editor that is a suitable fit for your topic/discipline

Whilst we cannot guarantee to match your document with an expert in the specific field, we will be able to assign it to someone with a knowledge and experience in the wider discipline of your subject.

For example, if your topic was the post-colonial African political landscape, we cannot guarantee to be able to match your document with a 20th Century African politics expert, however, we would ensure that your work was assigned to a proofreader with experience in the field of politics and Social Sciences. This ensures that they will have a good understanding of the subject’s style requirements and technical language.

The same example can be applied to any area of academia, e.g. submit a biology paper and we will match it as much as possible with a proofreader with editing experience in the wider area of human sciences and so on.

Please note that we do not offer content editing services at this time – just standard proofreading and editing. For substantive editing,  we recommend Cambridge Proofreading (see their dissertation proofreading & editing services page for more information).
