Hi! My name is Antonio, and I am open to helping academics edit their writings in the social and political sciences. I am also happy to design professional websites for academics from any field.

My editing philosophy is quite uncomplicated: to stay faithful to your own voice and style as an academic while making your writing crisp and camera-ready.

I have edited over 500,000 words as a PhD researcher and build on extensive experience in preparing and revising scholarly, business and non-academic manuscripts for publication.

Texts I am happy to edit for you1 include but are not limited to:

  • Doctoral dissertations
  • Journal articles
  • Special issues
  • Book chapters
  • Monographs
  • Edited collections
  • Essays

Depending on your specific needs, commissions can be customised to cover line editing, copy editing, and/or proofreading.2 In all cases, I would deliver the following:

  • 1-hour online consultation to discuss your editorial requirements
  • Your manuscript with my comments and suggested edits in tracked changes
  • A ‘clean’ edited version of your manuscript
  • Detailed written feedback (plus a style sheet in case you’d like to work further on your text)
  • 1-hour online feedback session (for larger commissions, more feedback sessions may be organised)

Standard rates start from €10 per page.3 Turnaround time is negotiable.

Aside from editing, I accept commissions from academics looking to make their own websites.

Although negotiable, rates can start from €300 per project (inclusive of basic web hosting, registering your chosen domain name, and website upkeep for one year).

  1. For ethical reasons, I am only accepting editing commissions from advanced doctoral researchers, early career scholars, more established academics, and their organisations. ↩︎
  2. From an editorial point of view, these tasks all share the aim of honing the overall writerly or scholarly quality of a given text. However, they have different foci in doing so. See here and here for a discussion. ↩︎
