Oxford Science Editing offers two levels of service, standard editing & premium editing. Both of our plans offer proofreading and language optimisation as standard. You can also choose whether you prefer US- or UK-style English.

We are proud to be associates and members of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.

Standard editing

  • The document will be proofread, including Table and Figure legends.
  • The flow and readability of the language will be checked, and light editing to improve these will be provided as necessary.
  • Standard editing is appropriate for papers that should be considered as a “final draft” with the exception of the English presentation.
  • What is not included in the standard edit:
    • Reorganization of text and removal of repetition.
    • Word length reduction.
    • Complete rewriting of large portions of text (>15% of the document).

Premium editing

  • Includes rewriting and substantial editing of the text, as appropriate, as well as the core components of a standard edit.
  • Word count reduction of the Abstract according to the guidelines of an identified target journal.
  • Reformatting of the paper according to the guidelines of the journal
  • Large sections (>15%) of the original text will be rewritten to ensure clarity and correct English usage.
  • Feedback is given to the authors in the form of a letter which highlights ways that the paper can be improved, or to identify areas that need further clarification.
