Establish yourself within the academy by securing a permanent job contract and winning highly competitive grant funding

At Lex Academic, we empower you to prepare and consolidate your applications for research funding, PhD and postdoctoral positions, research fellowships, and other job and grant applications.

Clearly articulated ideas make for stand-out job and funding applications

Backed by unmatched acquaintance with funding bodies and institutional expectations, we are in a unique position to appraise your research funding goals and offer our exemplary editing and consulting services.

For researchers who are looking for incisive feedback on their work before sending their applications off for peer review, we provide a rigorous and confidential grant and job proposal reporting service. This service seeks to pre-empt the kind of assessment you may receive from an external appraiser or academic search committee. We thereby enhance your chances of success by countenancing potential objections to your applications, from the editorial and ideological to the more administrative and strategic aspects, including timetables and budget breakdowns. We can, moreover, implement the necessary changes and improvements.

We are qualified to appraise all applications and give focused, expert guidance on how to improve the argumentation, structure, expression, and general adequacy of your writing and supporting materials. Whether you are applying for a research grant, a PhD position, or an academic job, Lex Academic are able to proofread or otherwise edit and redraft your application forms, covering letters, curricula vitae, and all supporting material.

We draw upon decades of experience helping colleagues across the globe secure competitive research funding, academic jobs, post-docs, and funded PhD positions. Our subject-matter expert editors ensure that your applications are as strong as possible in terms of both form and structure. We are also able to leave comments in places where we think your narrative or argumentation can be strengthened, thereby increasing your chances of success even further.

Can we help with anything else?

We also purvey extraordinary academic Proofreading, Copy-Editing, and Substantive Editing. Our impeccable author services include correcting all typographical, spelling, and grammatical errors. Where desired, we can make stylistic and substantive changes to your work that promise a powerful first impression with major publishers. Our authors have published with all of the top-tier publishing houses, including Bloomsbury, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Penguin, Peter Lang, Princeton University Press, and Routledge.

Authors or publishers interested in our services should get in touch with our Managing Editor detailing their editorial requirements and publication ambitions.

"Lex Academic copyedited my new book for Oxford University Press. I was extremely impressed with the entire editorial process, which significantly shortened the time I would have needed to submit the manuscript to the publisher. The editing was excellent and delivered in a timely manner. The editor was careful and meticulous, suggesting very well-judged, editorial interventions. Lex Academic offers an outstanding service and I do not hesitate to recommend it to all researchers in need of rigorous, academic, editorial support for their publications."
