Academic, business and education editing you can trust
I edit and proofread in the social sciences, humanities, business and education fields.
Books, articles, conference papers, reports, RFPs, white papers, commentaries, secondary and college texts, reviews, position papers, blog posts, capability papers, and doctoral theses and dissertations are all within my scope.
Specialist legal editing by a former lawyer

My legal clients include publishers, academics and researchers, law firms, international development agencies, think tanks, government departments, and other professional services firms.
Bring clarity and elegance
Join my international list of publishers, authors and agencies
My attention to detail is exemplary. That's why I'm trusted by an international list of publishing professionals.
I work with academic presses, academics, researchers, education publishers, doctoral students, NGOs, international development agencies, think tanks, government departments and quangos, and international professional services firms.
I'm an advocate for continuing professional development, and have mentored other editors and proofreaders, both formally and informally.
I also enjoy talking to groups, be they large or small, about editing, proofreading, and the publishing industry generally.
I've taught on the Professional Editing Standards Certificate programme at Queen's University, Professional Studies, Faculty of Education.

Her logic and excellent good sense has improved my writing immensely
'I’ve been a professional editor for over 20 years and have often suggested that potential clients hire Janet, as her reputation precedes her. So when it came to hiring someone to edit my own writing, I thought of her immediately. Her logic and excellent good sense has improved my writing immensely. I can see why clients love her!
