Academic Proofreader and Editor

Hi, I am Jon Evans,

I am an experienced academic who provides proofreading and editing services for academics and postgraduate students, helping them to considerably improve their chances of success. Many of my postgraduate customers have gained a distinction and all have gone on to teach, research, or have successfully entered business and industry. My academic customers have published in many of the leading journals in their discipline.

I regularly work on a wide range of documents, including: journal  articles, doctoral theses,  Master’s dissertations, and professional documents. I am also happy to help prepare journal selections, reviewer recommendations, and cover letters. I have worked on reports of less than 1,000 words and on theses of well over 140,000 words.

I usually charge £10 per thousand words for short work and dissertations, and £600 for an 80,000 word thesis. I charge 10% premium for working on LaTeX papers. I am happy to lower the price for shorter theses.

I have worked with postgraduates and academics from a large number of universities, including:

  • Queen’s College Belfast
  • Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University
  • Cardiff University
  • Ulster University
  • Newcastle University
  • University of Liverpool
  • Liverpool John Moores University
  • The Chinese University of Hong Kong
  • The University of Hong Kong
  • The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
  • University of Aberdeen

And I have worked on a large range of topics, including:

  • Business – logistics, economics, management, marketing
  • Physics – nuclear fusion, nanotechnology, high energy physics, materials, bio-physics
  • Engineering – electronics, nondestructive defect testing
  • Law – international law (business and international relations)
  • Social sciences
  • Humanities

The papers that I have worked on have been submitted to journals produced by the majority of the large academic publishers, including: Elsevier, Springer, and Taylor & Francis.

I specialise in editing work written by non-native users of English and have worked with clients from a large number of countries, including: China, Thailand, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, Brazil, the EU, and the Philippines.

I have over twenty years of experience of working on English-language writing by non-native users of English and I have worked in the print and publishing industry for over thirty years.
