Academic Copyeditor

I'm an academic editor with an MA in Religious Studies and a PhD in Asian Languages and Literature. My clients include authors, professors, and students in Asian religions, computer sciences, medicine, theology, yoga, and other fields. I also work with fantasy authors who are looking to add Sanskrit translations into their works. Most of my clients are professors and students who just need a second pair of eyes for their paper, dissertation, journal article, or book. Not sure you’ve caught all those stray typos and grammar issues? Need a table of contents formatted or want to make sure your works are in the right style? Let me take care of that for you so you can focus on other things. As a master of APA and Chicago, I’ll make sure your works are properly formatted for the right style guide. I offer copyediting, where I go through your work with a fine-toothed comb to make sure everything is consistent and catch all those lingering typos and awkward phrases. I also offer line editing, in which I look at the content of your work at the sentence level and make your writing sing. If you’re looking for someone to make one final pass through your work before sending it off, I offer proofreading as well.

"Michael is an exceptional editor. He edited my academic work (chapters for a book in publication) quickly and with attention to detail. He gets back to you right away and there is no stress. He is friendly and highly professional. I would recommend him to anyone with academic work and any job needing an editor who is caring and highly skilled."

"Michael was an excellent academic copy editor! I needed someone to edit my master's degree capstone paper in APA Style (7th Edition). Michael was professional, knowledgeable, and adaptable to a tight timeline. He made great recommendations that polished my paper to reflect proper scholarly writing. I highly recommend Michael and would gladly work with him again for future projects."

"Michael did an outstanding job editing some long articles for me. This is the first time we have worked together, but I can already tell that I am going to hire him again if he desires. He is a professional and it shows through his article adjustments that he outlines throughout the material. I highly recommend Michael for article proofreading and editing."
