Qualities we look for in our freelance editors
Proficiency and competence in the most widely spoken language across the world-English!
Knack for diligently editing, restructuring, and polishing articles written by non-native speakers, with least 3 years of relevant copyediting/academic editing experience
Extensive subject matter expertise

Research experience (studies conducted, papers written/published, papers reviewed, etc.)

A glimpse at what you would edit
You will be assigned papers of varying difficulty levels (in terms of English, subject matter expertise, and the extent of revision needed) written by non-native speakers in either English or their native language (translated papers). These papers written by what we believe constitute an eclectic group of authors and writers, i.e., we receive work from not only scientists, researchers, and students but also corporates, linguists, and the common man trying to communicate in English--from the latest in cutting-edge technology to the timeless fascination with history and arts!

Our freelance editors should ensure
Immaculate grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and word choice
Flow, transition, correct terminology, correctness of content, and coherence
Appropriate manuscript format that conforms to academic conventions in terms of citation style, layout, section headings, and tense usage
Preservation of the author's intended meaning even in papers where the content requires extensive revision Freelance editors also thoroughly format the manuscript as per mentioned journal guidelines when clients opt for our journal formatting service.

If selected, we present you with a contract, which includes a freelancer agreement, terms of service, and other relevant documents.
