Academic Editing, Copyediting & Proofreading

Rates

These posted rates for individual authors are approximate, are based on the type of service and the level of editorial involvement, and will be finalized after an initial manuscript review. All rates are subject to change at any time.

Development editing: After reviewing your manuscript, I will send you a proposed hourly editing fee. I will also charge a printing fee. It is much easier to do a first read for a developmental edit on paper, so the fee is calculated on the amount I last paid for paper and ink at x¢/pg.

Copyediting: After reviewing your manuscript, I will send you a proposed hourly copyediting fee.

Manuscript formatting (also called setting styles): $100 new style template fee + $10 per style. If I use an existing template, I won’t charge a template fee.

Non-subject indexing: $50 new index style template fee + $20/hr. If I use an existing template, I won’t charge a template fee.

Proofreading: $30/hr.

Fact-checking: $30/hr.

Research: $50/hr., calculated in 15 min. increments.
