Academic Editing specializing in philosophy

Academic journal article editing

An academic editor specializes in editing and proofreading academic manuscripts, from journal articles and book reviews to full-length scholarly.

The aim of an academic editor is to help authors express themselves as clearly and cogently as possible. Since academic writing is based on argumentation, an academic editor have an eye for the claim-and-evidence structure of arguments, both on the level of individual sentences and paragraphs, and on that of a whole paper, chapter, or book. He should have the knack of quickly determining whether a given piece needs only minor retouching or a major structural overhaul.

Of course, he must also be actively focussed on matters of style: overuse of passive constructions, overreliance on jargon, etc. Finally, he must be attentive to details, watching out for consistency of style in reference to sources, capitalization, punctuation.

In the end, the role of an academic editor, as of any editor, is not to rewrite your material for you, but to help you make the most striking and stylish presentation of your ideas.
