Process: Costs & Workflow

Every project I take on is different, and every client has their own expectations. As a result, I determine costs on a project-by-project basis. I take into consideration the type of editing needed, how quickly you need the project completed, and any additional services you need (formatting, word count reduction, etc.). You will find that my editing expertise and my desire to work with you in communicating your research will add significant value to your final project.

How does this process work?

Contact me:​ When you contact me about a project, we will discuss what your project needs. Then, I will look over your document* and do a free 300-word sample edit for new clients. The sample edit will allow you to evaluate my editing risk free, and I will use it to  create a price quote. If you decide to hire me, we'll agree on the project cost and then editing will begin.​

 

*Send me your document via email using one of these file types: .doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt, .pdf 

Editing begins:​ I will edit your project using Track Changes in Microsoft Word or using Adobe's comment and markup tools for PDF files. If I have any questions during editing, I will e-mail as necessary. I will be available by e-mail, phone, or Zoom as needed. 

       

Editing process:​ Once I've finished the first draft of editing, I'll send the document back to you, identifying any items that need to be clarified. After these concerns are are addressed, I will check over the document again and make any final changes. Then the completed project will be sent back to you as an e-mail attachment. 

Payment:​ I will send you an invoice along with your completed project that will be due within 30 days of receipt. Payments can be made by credit card, transfer, or check.
