Proofreading

Lex Academic help academics and PhD students to place their work with leading journals and prestigious publishing houses.

Proofreading

Lex Academic are purveyors of extraordinary proofreading, promising clear and fault-free prose. We catch all errata: from misspellings and typographical errors, to infelicities in grammar and punctuation. In addition, we flag up all misused, unclear, or unidiomatic phraseology, proffering suggestions of our own where necessary. Our proofreading prices start at £16 per 1,000 words.

Proofreading is for those clients who need the peace of mind of knowing that their manuscript is absolutely fault-free.

We moreover render your work consistent with regard to formatting and referencing style. To this end, we are conversant with the dominant citation styles for business, the sciences, medicine, humanities, and law (including APA, Chicago, Harvard, ICMJE, MLA, and OSCOLA). Furthermore, we readily familiarise ourselves with the peculiarities required by different university faculties for the sake of Ph.D. submission. Just let us know your referencing style and spelling conventions (e.g., American or British English) and we can begin transforming your manuscript into flawless prose.

All changes to your work are logged through Microsoft Word’s Track Changes facility. This enables you to keep tabs on our interventions, giving you autonomy over the final draft of your work. All proofreads are finished by one of our founders, who gives the seal of approval to all work, thereby assuring eager, returning clients.
