Academic Editing, Copyediting & Proofreading


As a trained NT scholar himself, Lynn in particular gave far more than the usual broad oversight. A number of his suggestions clarified the argument of the book and enhanced the research behind it.

The Mutilation of Mark’s Gospel

Copyeditor Lynn Kauppi’s assistance greatly improved the book’s content, consistency, clarity, and presentation.

Lynn Kauppi made copyediting truly pleasurable.

Philip V. Bohlman, ed.

Music in American Religious Experience, New York: Oxford University Press, 2006

I used Lynn Kauppi’s editorial services for my second book, Deborah’s Daughters: Gender Politics and Biblical Interpretation (Oxford University Press), preparing the manuscript for submission to the editor. His careful reading improved the citations and bibliography. He caught errors that I had missed. When I got the copy-edited manuscript back from the publisher, I was amazed at how much less work I had to compared to my first book, for which I didn’t hire someone for editorial services. There were relatively few changes and queries from the copy-editor. Lynn’s work made my 3-week window to get comments back to the publisher so much less stressful.
