I have written my first story and because I am very new to the industry, I need an expert in the field to put my story in the proper manuscript format and proofread it. I have done some research online and have yet to find detailed visual examples of how to properly format a picture book manuscript. I'm starting to think it's a top secret thing that only people in the industry know. That being said, I've decided to go the Elance route. I've browsed through some of the freelancers with experience as editors specializing in children's books, and I must say I'm quite impressed. Would like to see some offers and see who I will hire. My first story is in a word document, it's 6 pages, word count is 1140 but that's because of the added descriptions I have. I'm assuming the way I have them is not the proper way to format a manuscript. When you read it you will know what I mean. But I tried to be as visual as possible describing the setting of the story. When you read it, picture the...

I have written a book on how to improve a language learner's memory. Word count is about 11k. The book is not academic, written for the lay person. I am looking for an editor for the book. Some interest in the area would help so editor is working at the level of sense/meaning, not just syntax.

Hello, I'm looking for an experienced, already published, proofreader and editor to review / adapt and prepare for submission a manuscript on impoliteness. Being a marketing researcher I'm not used to submit paper to a linguistics journal and that's why I'm seeking support from someone in the field. I'm looking exclusively for a PhD-level, already published editor. My manuscript deals with dysfunctional employee behavior and impoliteness. My lit review is pretty complete in terms of marketing literature but may suffer lacks in terms of linguistics literature. The chosen editor should propose additional references to strengthen the argumentation (some places where extra refs are needed are highlighted in yellow in the attached manuscript). Besides fixing my English and making the text "flow", the job includes the formatting of the text and references for submission according to the Journal of Pragmatics guidelines. Any questions pertaining to the manuscript itself, possib...

We are currently in need of academic editors, mainly for master's and doctoral theses and dissertations. Our clients come from a wide range of disciplines, including the humanities, social sciences, and the sciences, and many of the projects we work with are quantitative or qualitative research studies. Most of the work we edit is in APA 6 style, so candidates well-versed in APA are strongly preferred. The type of editing we do does not necessitate that you are familiar with statistics, since we solely address language and writing-related issues, ranging from light proofreading to deep edits and assistance with rewriting and research as needed. Candidates must be native English speakers with a MA or PhD and proven experience editing dissertations/theses. Having your own academic work published is a plus. To apply, please explain your qualifications and experience and provide a current CV/resume. Please let us know your standard rate for editing (by word or page count).
