I provide a wide range of academic services to get your research on track. Maybe even tenure track.
Proofreading and Editing
Basic: from €20 per 1000 words and €2 per additional 100 word-fragment
You have a deadline approaching for your essay, dissertation, journal article or side project and need a little bit of help with spelling and grammar? Select the Basic package for a quicker turnaround time.
Advanced: from €25 per 1000 words and €2.50 per additional 100-word fragment
Looking for additional input on style and sentence structure? Then choose the Advanced package for a more substantive review of your work. This is the most popular option and guarantees you both a timely turnaround and a thorough examination of the most important elements of your writing. Ideally suited for students wrapping up their dissertations and theses.
Premium: from €30 per 1000 words and €3 per additional 100-word fragment
You want the works? You got the works! Select the Premium package for a thorough review of your grammar, spelling, style and content. The Premium package is an ideal solution for authors and editors of larger texts, including monographs, journals and journal articles, edited volumes and grant applications. Surcharges apply if a rapid turnaround is needed.
Specific feedback can be given on most texts in the social and political sciences and in some fields of the humanities and business. My specialisations include:
• Memory studies
• Peace and conflict studies; violence
• Yugoslav and post-Yugoslav history and culture
• German history, language and culture
• International development theory and practice
Note that this option is not available for students completing dissertations and theses, as it is the duty of your supervisor(s) to provide you sufficient feedback on your content.

Contact me directly for proofreading services for doctoral dissertations. I’ve been there, done that, and am willing to help however I can, even on a chapter basis! Note that turnaround times can be significantly longer for PhD theses.
All dissertation and thesis projects require the express consent of your supervisor(s).
Citations and References
I can help straighten out your reference list and adapt your citations to the appropriate format for your publisher or examiner* (Harvard, APA, Chicago, MLA and more). I will also run a complete check of your document and flag any missing citations either in the body of the text, the footnotes or the final reference list. Please note that I charge hourly, rather than per-word, rates for checking bibliographies, as this can mitigate disproportionate expenses on your end.
Reference checks (for completion and consistency) start at €35 per hour, with a minimum of one hour.
Bibliography revisions (only for completed bibliographies, no checks for in-text consistency) start at €1.50 per bibliographic entry.
*Reference checks for assessed work must be approved by your supervisor(s), as it is the student’s responsibility to develop their own citation skills and to ensure that all works referenced are actually cited.
I have extensive experience in designing and formatting publications and dissertations for myself and for professional bodies. If you require assistance in preparing your document for final submission or publication, contact me to discuss the formatting requirements and file formats. I prefer to work in Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), the Apple iLife suite (Pages, Numbers, Keynote) and Adobe Acrobat (DC or Pro) and InDesign.
Formatting starts at €35 per hour, with a minimum of one hour.
Do you have a body of text that needs to be translated from German into English? Contact me for individual pricing, with translations starting from €0.09 per word.
All prices given are starting rates and may vary given the level of editing or proofreading deemed necessary to complete your project. Terms and Conditions apply.
