Our editing service for essays and articles addresses your need to have your academic article or other essay ready for print, which means that it must read clearly, have spotless formatting, and be prepared to reach its audience.
We've been specializing in essay and journal article editing since 2002, with the launch of Editors For Students. Our purpose at Off the Grid Editing is to provide a wider suite of services that are more suited to the nuanced editing needs of scholar-writers and independent authors. We work with clients in the United States, Canada, and around the world to help with the style, tone, and voice challenges of international English and to prepare error-free, properly typeset drafts of all our clients' articles for final publication.
When submitting an essay or article for editing on our order page, you'll be asked to select among the following service offerings, depending upon how deep you want your editor to venture into your text and, of course, whether you need editing for style and voice or editing primarily for grammar:
- Copy Editing Service ($5/pg.) - With a deadline of one week per 100 pages, our copy editing service returns an error-free, print-ready draft of your essay or article. We will follow any house style sheets that you provide us.
- Line Editing Service ($8/pg.) - Starting at a one week deadline (with express options available), our line editing service provides a focus on logical consistency, tone, syntax, and related errors that are impeding the clarity of your essay or article.
- Proofreading Service ($3/pg.) - Our proofreading service was designed to provide a final pass over essay and article drafts that have been copy edited and that only require a review for any remaining errors in punctuation, word substitutions (e.g., homonym use), and spelling.
- Citation Formatting Service ($2/pg.) - With our citation style formatting service added to your order, we will correctly format your article's parenthetical, footnote, or endnote citations and external reference lists. We also isolate and label missing citation information, such as date and place of publication and page numbers that may still need to be provided.
- Typesetting Service ($2/pg.) - Our typesetting service ensures that the guidelines for the appearance of your article, as specified by your publisher in their house style, are met. Our typesetting service takes care of the pagination, preliminary pages, margins, labels, and headings as specified by your article or essay publisher's house style.
If you're unsure which of these levels of editing you most need for your article, you may wish to contact us and we can find the service that's right for you. Of course, if you'd like us go get started, your essay is in good hands at our order page.
