I offer a discount for documents with more than 8,000 words, for multiple services (for example, copyediting and formatting), for repeated clients, and for students.
If you are not sure of what kind of edit your manuscript needs, you can email me your document, and I can suggest you the best service.
Turnaround time may vary based on the length of the document (no more than one week for an average-length research paper). You don't have to worry about the deadline.
All documents are strictly confidential. I will delete them 20 days after the completion of the agreed service.
Payment: PayPal or bank transfer. Before starting the editing, I will send you the invoice and the information on the payment, which is due immediately after completion.
Please contact me to discuss your project, receive an estimate, and if you have any questions on services, payment, or turnaround times. You can use the contact form or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
