Allan Eaglesham's
Manuscript Editing Service

I improve the readability of all kinds of written materials, from personal letters to scientific research papers and grant proposals, while checking spelling, punctuation and syntax. No job is too large or too small; there is no minimum charge.

Much of my work is on scientific manuscripts--grant proposals and research papers--but by no means all. I help clients with job applications, résumés, personal letters, and fiction and non-fiction for publication, etc. Good English is good English, however you choose to package it. Here are brief examples of my editing and writing styles, and a list of recent assignments.

May I help you, or your company?

My basic rate for Copyediting is $50 per hour. As a rule of thumb, this extrapolates to a fee of approximately $200 for a twelve-page manuscript, single-spaced. I can either make changes directly to your text on diskette or on an e-mail file, or insert suggestions for change on a hard copy and return it as a PDF file or by s-mail. Estimates are free of charge with no obligation implied. I'll quote a special rate for jobs in excess of 100 pages.

If you are not happy with my work, please say so.
If I cannot solve the problem to your satisfaction, there will be no charge.
