Editing

With more than 16 years’ experience in research and academe, I edit journal articles, grant proposals, books and book chapters, doctoral theses, reports, evidence briefs, and abstracts.

I work with authors to improve the articulation of their ideas, experiences, and knowledge, with a focus on:

  • copyediting—correcting grammatical errors, punctuation, spelling, and word use.
  • stylistic editing—clarifying, refining, and simplifying sentences/paragraphs, eliminating repetition and jargon, and applying style/author guidelines (APA, Chicago, Vancouver, MLA, Harvard).
  • substantive/structural editing—improving flow/organization and identifying gaps in content.
