Ditchfield Editorial is run by Andrea Ditchfield and offers a professional and reliable proofreading service to publishers, independent authors, businesses and charities, academics and students.
I trained with the Publishing Training Centre, passing their Basic Proofreading course with merit. I am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) and thus I adhere to their Code of Practice. My educational background is in science and I have a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry and an MSc in Analytical Bioscience. I also have a PhD in Developmental Bioscience. As a former medical writer, I have a keen eye for detail and experience of working to strict deadlines. No job is too big or too small. All types of written materials are accepted for proofreading including:
– Newsletters and magazine articles
– Promotional materials
– Company reports and business proposals
– Academic manuscripts
– Student dissertations and theses
– PowerPoint slides
– Website text
– CVs and cover letters
I work electronically using the ‘Track Changes’ feature in Microsoft Word or the ‘Comment and Mark-up’ tools on PDFs. If you prefer, I can also work on hard copy using the British Standards Institution (BSI) correction symbols.
Please get in touch using the contact details above and I will be happy to discuss your project requirements with you.
