With over 15 years of editorial and production experience, Merritt Editorial Services offer an efficient, accurate and individually tailored project management and editing service.
I specialise in copyediting and proofreading academic books and journals, non-fiction, business and reference titles for many major publishers. Recent clients include: SAGE Publications, Oxford University Press, Taylor & Francis, Integra, Maney Publishing and Equinox Books.
I also edit manuscripts for novice authors hoping to find an agent, intending to self-publish or who want their work polished before submission to a publisher. These might be any genre, from business books to travelogues, self-help books to specialist reference material. But nearly all will benefit from a professional edit that focuses on structural integrity, style and tone.
I trained in Publishing Studies at Stirling University, and qualified with an MPhil. I am also a Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) and abide by its Code of Practice. I have a BA degree in English Literature, and previously worked in-house for over 10 years for international publishers such as Dorling Kindersley, Orion Publishing and SAGE Publications. I have edited and proofread hundreds of published social science and humanities articles and books.
