Our humane mission
Based in Chelsea, London, we are a boutique author services firm with a humane mission. Spearheaded by Oxbridge-educated academics, we boast 20 years’ editorial experience in the humanities, business, and the sciences with over 100 research publications between us.
We appreciate the challenges encountered by authors in the competitive academic publishing space, especially those who are not native speakers of English. At Lex Academic, we don’t believe that language should be a barrier to publication. That is why a proportion of our profits go towards our three Lex Academic Scholarships, funds that support research students with dyslexia.
We have looked after the manuscripts of hundreds of academics and PhD students, enabling native and non-native English speakers alike to place their work with leading journals and prestigious publishing houses. Our clients have placed their work with Mind, Feminist Modernist Studies, Canadian Journal of Philosophy, Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, British Journal for the History of Philosophy, Journal of Business Research, The Journal of Hellenic Studies, The Review of Metaphysics, Oxford Art Journal, Classical Review, Ancient Philosophy, and many others.
Our boutique author service ensures your work is submission-ready with a tailored menu of proofreading and editing services that promote publication success. We are especially beloved by those who have been ripped off and let down by faceless proofreading firms; our clients return to us time and again because we offer a service that they can trust.
