Copy editing for academic purposes

Idris consultancy will copy edit research papers to prepare them for submission to journals. We copy edit language, not content and guarantee that your research paper will be fluent and easy to read. However, we can’t guarantee that a research journal will accept the paper for publication.


We also copy edit theses, dissertations etc. by non-native speakers of English in preparation for submission to examiners. We will not re-write but we will correct grammar, punctuation and vocabulary and, where necessary, advise authors on reorganising text. We will apply principles of Plain English to texts. In other words we will sharpen a text so that it puts across its intended meaning clearly and concisely.


If this is what you need then get in contact by email ( We will ask you for a 500 word sample of the work in question which we will then copy edit, so that you can see what you will be paying for. When we return the sample to you we will quote a reasonable price for editing the rest of the work.
