Academic copy-editing, proofreading and formatting for researchers in the social sciences and humanities

I’m an academic editor, providing copy-editing and formatting services to researchers in the social sciences (mainly education) and the humanities: undergraduate dissertations, master’s theses, doctoral dissertations, journal articles, books/chapters, research proposals and reports, funding applications, and much more.

I’m a professional member of both the Society for Editors & Proofreaders (UK) and the Institute of Professional Editors (Australia), with a postgraduate qualification in editing and communication from the University of Melbourne, Australia and first class honours degree in philosophy from the University of Brighton, UK.

I have more than 10 years’ experience editing higher degree research theses, and my services are recommended by many universities in the UK, Australia and the US.

You can read some of my clients’ testimonials on my website, so you can rest assured you will receive a high-quality service:

Pam did a wonderful job copyediting and formatting my PhD thesis. Her professional manner along with brilliant communication skills leads me to recommending her to others. She was efficient in responding to queries and she kept to all deadlines. Having said that, when I needed deadlines altered, she did her best to accommodate me, which I appreciated. Thanks Pam, I will certainly be using your services in the future. (PhD Candidate, Education)

Pam was a star in my gloomy PhD sky. If I could ever give her any criticism, it would be to consider changing her title to ‘The Detail Angel’. (PhD Candidate, Education)

I am so grateful for Pam. She not only brought exceptional expertise to the job I asked of her [copyediting a thesis], but she is genuinely kind, a brilliant communicator, and it is obvious that she genuinely loves what she does. She makes the gruelling, ‘pointy end’ of writing a delightful denouement. So many times I have thought about the qualities Pam brings to her work. I would use her again in a heartbeat! (PhD Candidate, Education)

Pam provided excellent copyediting and proofreading services for my thesis. She was professional, efficient, insightful and personable. Her capacity to pick inconsistencies, ask probing questions and clarify ideas was second to none. Pam provided a service over and above my expectations. Not only did she meet deadlines, she actually delivered ahead of time! Pam made just a monotonous task an enjoyable one for me. I highly recommend her services for any academic endeavour. (PhD Candidate, Curriculum &

I can’t recommend Pam enough, she was brilliant to work with and I felt confident putting my work out into the world knowing that she’d copy edited and proofed it. I’ll definitely be using her for my next novel. (YA fiction author)

This is the best money I have ever spent on myself. (PhD Candidate, Education)

Pam is a master of academic style manuals and finds answers to complex referencing questions quickly and accurately. She is indeed good at detail and tracks it through the manuscript. Best of all, Pam is able to achieve just the right balance between making a decision and referring a decision to you. A pleasure to work with. (Emeritus Professor, Education)


Pam helped me with the formatting and proofreading of my PhD thesis. It was a pleasure to work with her. She did an amazing job and on time. I highly recommend her.
